Tuesday, June 27, 2023 8 Tammuz 5783

7:00 PM - 8:30 PMZoom Room Bet

Nonfiction: 480 pages

Tolan, author of The Lemon Tree, tells the story of Ramzi Aburedwan, a boy from a Palestinian refugee camp who participated in the 1st Intifada. Children of the Stone chronicles Ramzi's journey—from stone thrower to music student to school founder—and shows how through his love of music he created something lasting and beautiful in the midst of the violence of the Occupation. Returning to the West Bank after studying in a French conservatory, Ramzi establishes a network of music schools based in West Bank refugee camps. Musicians from around the world, including Daniel Barenboim, the Israeli musician and music director of La Scala in Milan and the Berlin Opera, help Ramzi realize his goal. 

Discussion led by Joel Beinin. Nonmembers welcome. RSVP for Zoom info.
