LitFest presents Marcello Di Cintio speaking about his new book, Pay No Heed to the Rockets.

Journalist Marcello Di Cintio first visited Palestine in 1999. Like most outsiders, the Palestinian narrative that he knew had been simplified by a seemingly unending struggle, a near-Sisyphean curse of stories of oppression, exile, and occupation told over and over again. In Pay No Heed to the Rockets, he reveals a more complex story, the Palestinian experience as seen through the lens of authors and books, exploring what literature means to modern Palestinians and how they make sense of the conflict between a rich imaginative life and the daily violence of survival.

This event is presented with support from Amnesty International.

Allard Hall is wheelchair accessible.
