Librarians and Archivists with Palestine's 2017 "One Book, Many Communities" Initiative

Librarians and Archivists with Palestine invites you to join our annual international reading campaign, One Book, Many Communities held in April 2017, in concurrence with National Reading Week in Palestine. This year’s reading is “Returning to Haifa” by Ghassan Kanafani, a novella that can be found in the collection Palestine’s Children: Returning to Haifa and Other Stories.

This project draws inspiration from the “one book, one town" idea, wherein people in local communities come together to read and discuss a common book. Librarians and Archivists with Palestine invites readers, librarians, and others to organize gatherings to discuss “Returning to Haifa." This campaign is designed to introduce readers to the richness of Palestinian literature, and create a broader awareness and understanding of Palestinian history and the struggle for self-determination.
