THE WANDERING PALESTINIAN by Anan Ameri: A Masterful and Riveting Memoir of Activism and Immigration
By: BHC Press
"I've been an activist most of my adult life," says Anan Ameri when asked why she wrote her memoir. "In the US, for over forty years, I've worked with immigrant communities, mostly from Palestine and other Arab countries. Their aspirations, passions, and struggles not only inspired me, but also made me realize how my individual story is in fact a part of their larger story."
The Wandering Palestinian is published by BHC Press and is available at all major booksellers, including Bookshop.org.
Booksellers, retailers, and librarians may order direct from Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Gardners, Overdrive, Perma-Bound, and the publisher's website: https://www.bhcpress.com/
