Sayed Kashua is a journalist born in Tira, Israel. Kashua, a Palestinian citizen of Israel is known for his books and humorous columns in Hebrew. He is the author of three novels: “Dancing Arabs,” “Let it Be Morning,” “Second Person Singular” and “Native: Dispatches from an Israeli-Palestinian Life.” Kashua created and writes for the award-winning hit Israeli TV show “Arab Labor,” and is the focus of the documentary “Forever Scared.”
His novel, “Dancing Arabs,” has been made into a feature film, and premiered in 2014 at the Telluride Film Festival. Kashua is the winner of many awards, including the prestigious Bernstein Prize.
Kashua will speak about his experience as a Palestinian citizen of Israel in a world that tolerates him but never manages to accept him with open arms. In a humorous,
tongue-in-cheek style, Kashua addresses the problems faced by Arabs in Israel, caught between two worlds.
Light refreshments will be served. Child care available and can be reserved at registration.
Gramercy Books will have Sayed Kashua’s books available for purchase at the event.
