Thursday, May 2, 2024 24 Nisan 5784

7:30 PM - 9:00 PMCDT (60 Highland St; in-person only)

The Israel/Palestine Peace Committee invites members and friends of CDT to an evening with the Israeli writer and scholar Linda Dittmar, author of a powerful new memoir about her Israeli childhood and the abandoned landscapes she encounters as an adult. Tracing Homelands: Israel, Palestine, and the Claims of Belonging vividly describes the years before statehood, the 1948 war, and the traumas of dispossession and attachment traced literally upon the land. Born in 1938 and growing up in Herzliya and Tel Aviv, Dittmar takes us on a journey across place and time, offering wise, sensitive, and honest perspectives in beautiful prose.

Linda Dittmar is a professor emerita of literature and film at U-Mass Boston; Tracing Homelands is available in paperback from Olive Branch Press. You don't need to read the book to join the conversation!
