Ghada Karmi (2015 Event)

When she was forced to leave Palestine in 1948, for Ghada Karmi it meant that she would spend most of her life away from her native land. In Return: A Palestinian Memoir, Karmi describes visits to places she hasn’t seen since her childhood; places that now have to live with the grim reality of occupation. Watch her Book Festival event, filmed live, for a moving account of belonging and exile. Chaired by Scottish journalist and broadcaster Ruth Wishart.
