Room for Reading / Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme


1 - 31 October 2019

To accompany 'A Place for the Work and the Human Being’, this year’s Room for Reading programme will feature monthly online selections by the participating speakers. We hope to make texts freely available as an online resource where possible.

This month, Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme have selected 'After the Last Sky: Palestinian Lives' by Edward W. Said, a portrait of Palestinian life and identity that is an exploration of Said's unclaimable past and a testimony to the lives of those living in exile worldwide.
