Book Release Celebration with Journalist Nora Barrows-Friedman
IN OUR POWER: U.S. STUDENTS ORGANIZE FOR JUSTICE IN PALESTINE
(Just World Books)
The Middle East Children's Alliance is thrilled to host this celebration of award-winning reporter Nora Barrows-Friedman's new book which documents the emergence and success of the Students for Justice in Palestine movement, using many of Nora's investigative interviews with activists nationwide. Her journalistic experience in Palestine and close engagement with Palestinian solidarity activism give Nora a unique ability to help these inspiring student leaders tell their stories!
Special Guest MALIHE RAZAZAN, who cohosts KPFA's "Voices of the MIddle East" program, will interview Nora about her book. And activists from Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) will participate in the Q and A with Nora.
Nora Barrows-Friedman is a staff writer/editor with The Electronic Intifada and has contributed to Al-Jazeera English, Truthout.org and more. Past Senior Producer/co-host of KPFA's investigative news magazine "Flashpoints", in 2009 she received the Lifetime Achievement Media Freedom Award from the Media Freedom Foundation.
