Literary: Maxine Kaufman-Lacusta's talk on Palestine @ People's Co-op Books


Just a reminder / correction that Maxine Kaufman-Lacusta's talk on Palestine is TONIGHT!
at the People's Co-op Bookstore.

Refusing to be Enemies:
Non-Violent Resistance to the Israeli Occupation Wednesday, November 7
7 pm :: Free admission


The People's Co-op Bookstore is pleased to present a couple of great events this week.

This WEDNESDAY, November 7, MAXINE KAUFMAN-LACUSTA will give a talk on non-violent activism by Palestinian and Israeli activists.

Kaufman is the editor of Refusing to be Enemies: Nonviolent Resistance to the Israeli Occupation, with contributions from Ursual Franklin, Starhawk, Jonathan Kuttab, Kaufman-Lacusta, and others. Refusing to be Enemies is an interview-based study that presents the voices of over 100 practitioners and theorists of nonviolence, the vast majority either Palestinian or Israeli, as they reflect on their own involvement in nonviolent resistance and speak about the nonviolent strategies and tactics employed by Palestinian and Israeli organizations, both separately and in joint initiatives.

Please join us for an evening of interesting discussion and insights from Maxine Kaufman Lacusta as she presents from her book the reflections of Palestinian and Isreali non-violent activism. These activists share examples of effective nonviolent campaigns and discuss obstacles and challenges encountered in their pursuit of a just peace.

The event begins at 7 pm. Admission is free.


Then, on FRIDAY, November 9, long-time Vancouver resident Paul Kelley, now teaching at Queen's University, and Dorothy Trujillo Lusk, will be reading at the Co-op. Kelley will be launching his new book Matter's Music (Bushek Books). Vancouver's own Dorothy Trujillo Lusk is the author of Ogress Oblige (Krupskaya Press).

Reading begins at 8 pm. Admission is free.
