Gaza: Beneath the Bombs – meet the author

Palestinian girls on wagonload of bombed olive trees, Jabalia, January 2009 (S.Lock)


‘An honest, forthright account full of compassion and insight. It plunges the reader into Gaza.’ Jeremy Hardy

The Israeli offensive in Gaza was described by Amnesty international as ‘22 days of death and destruction’. Defying an international press ban, Sharyn Lock’s eye witness blogs became crucial reading for anyone following the conflict. Sharyn’s candid and dramatic accounts, now published as a book, provide an important glimpse behind the media black-out, of Palestinians who face their oppression with courage - and humour

Reading & signing of “Gaza: beneath the bombs” by Sharyn Lock
Featuring readings by the author and by Ian Gibson
Saturday January 23rd 2010, 4.30pm
At The Book Hive, 53 London Street, Norwich

Refreshments available and donations will be collected for Defend the Rescuers, helping medics in Gaza.
