Book Reading with Wagih Abu-Rish
May 27, 2023
Cherry Street Village
Join Salaam Cultural Museum, Dunya Productions and the Cherry Street Village for a reading, discussion, and Q&A with author Wagih Abu-Rish. Light appetizers will be served. This event is open to the public and is free to attend.
The latest novel by Wagih Abu-Rish is a story of love, determination, and political intrigue: Nad of Nadide reveals that love, whether between two of the same ethnicity, or between lovers who never expected to cross ethnic boundaries, is one worth fighting for, at the cost of defying all norms and challenges.
Wagih’s debut novel (Replenishing the Sea of Galilee) is a sweeping story of love, loss, and the power of loyalty in the face of conflicting ideologies and religious beliefs.
“Deftly crafted with impressive attention to historical detail and context, Replenishing the Sea of Galilee is an inherently riveting read and one that will prove to be an enduringly popular and appreciated addition to community library General Fiction in general, and Jewish/Palestinian Historical/Cultural Fiction collections in particular.”
