Another outside meet up to discuss Palestine. I wonder if we’ll continue to be so lucky with the weather in late September.
It was interesting to talk about Palestine, a first graphic novel for quite a few people. We talked about the difficulty of remembering to look at the pictures, impartiality, context, and how we think things have changed in the region since 1991/2.
The winning book for next time is Memento Mori by Muriel Spark – the book pitch was also a pitch for the work of http://
