Born in the Galilee village of Saffuriyya in 1931, the self-taught and beloved Taha Muhammad Ali (1931-2011) wrote poems—direct, sometimes humorous, often devastating—that conflate the personal and political with details of village life and the upheaval of conflict.
On the first anniversary of the death of this major Palestinian writer, we celebrate his life and work with readings, reminiscences, and audio and video clips.
