3:00 PM to 4:00 PM: Keynote Speech, a reading by author Ibtisam Barakat, and Q&A

4:00 PM to 5:00 PM: Booking signing and Mediterranean-Themed Reception

The Center for Civil and Human Rights is proud to collaborate with the the Alif Institute, Atlanta’s Arab Cultural Center, to host Palestinian-American and award-winning author and poet Ibtisam Barakat for a keynote speech in conjunction with the release of her new memoir BALCONY ON THE MOON (FSG/Macmillan 2016).

Barakat’s new and intense memoir details her life as she came of age in Palestine from 1972 – 1981, a politically turbulent time in Palestine’s history in particular and Middle Eastern history in general. The book explores several timely and important themes, including human rights and equality, the costs of wars and unresolved racial strife, and the necessity of education for girls worldwide. BALCONY ON THE MOON is the companion to Barakat’s groundbreaking and critically acclaimed earlier memoir, TASTING THE SKY, A Palestinian Childhood (FSG, 2007).

“[An] intense memoir. A poetic, deeply felt coming-of-age story.” – Kirkus Reviews, 2016
