Palestine’s leading writer, Raja Shehadeh was described by Colm Tóibín as ‘a great inquiring spirit with a tone that is vivid, ironic, melancholy and wise’. Also a lawyer and founder of human rights organisation Al-Haq, Shehadeh joins ILFDublin to discuss his book Where the Line is Drawn: Crossing Boundaries in Occupied Palestine. John Berger said of Shehadeh’s Palestinian Walks: Notes on a Vanishing Landscape — winner of the 2008 Orwell Prize for Political Writing — ‘Towards any proper understanding of history there are many small paths. I strongly suggest you walk with him.’ Don’t miss your chance to do so!  The event is chaired by Martin Doyle, Books Editor of the Irish Times
