Join us and Blue Metropolis for a live interview and book signing with peace-builder and memoirist Yousef Bashir, author of The Words of My Father.

About The Words of My Father: Palestinian Khalil Bashir was a committed pacifist, even after his 15 year old son Yousef was shot by an Israeli soldier and paralyzed from the waist down. Now, Yousef Bashir embraces his late father’s pacifism, writing about it in his memoir, The Words of My Father.

This event is part of the Almemar Series of the Blue Metropolis Literary Festival. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance here.
