Palestine + 100 is a new anthology posing a question to ten contemporary Palestinian writers: what might your home country look like in the year 2048 – exactly 100 years after Nakba, the displacement of more than 700,000 people following the Israeli War of Independence?
How might that war reach across a century of repair and rebirth, and affect the state of the country – its politics, religion, language, and culture? And how might Palestine have finally escaped it, and found its own peace, a hundred years down the line?
This anthology showcases contemporary Arabic writers offering their own spin on science fiction and fantasy. This evening will feature readings by authors and contributors Selma Dabbagh and Anwar Hamed/Ahmed Masoun.
