Nathan Thrall: A Day In The Life of Abed Salama
Monday, November 6 | 7:00pm
First United Methodist Church of Chicago
77 West Washington Street
In the past weeks, as the violence in Israel/Palestine has escalated so terribly, we have grieved losses so huge that they can be difficult to grasp. With this in mind, we hope you can join author Nathan Thrall discussing his book and the situation in Israel/Palestine with HRW Israel Palestine Director Omar Shakir in a conversation moderated by Dr. Barbara Ransby, Director of the Social Justice Initiative at the University of Illinois Chicago. Rabbi Brant Rosen will offer welcome remarks.
Immersive and gripping, A Day in the Life of Abed Salama is an indelibly human portrait of the struggle over Israel/Palestine that offers a new understanding of the tragic history and reality of one of the most contested places on earth.
