Join us online for the 10th year of the Palestine Book Awards – on Wednesday, 24 November 2021 at 6.30pm GMT.
The evening will begin with a keynote address by Haider Eid – an Associate Professor at Al-Aqsa University, a policy advisor at Al-Shabaka, and a member of the advisory committee of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel.
The keynote will be followed by a roundtable discussion with this year's shortlisted authors proving an opportunity to explore their books. Professor Eugene Rogan of St Anthony's College, Oxford, will moderate the dialogue with PBA Judge Prof Nur Masalha.
The winners of this year's Awards will then be announced.
