Vargas Llosa, 24 Authors to Visit Palestine to Write about Occupation

JERUSALEM – A total of 25 literary figures, including Peruvian Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa, will visit Palestine and Israel next week to write in 2017 a book to remember the 50th anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.

The writers will spend a week in the region, where various NGOs and anti-occupation activists will be responsible for showing them the situation on ground.

The book, which is going to be edited by authors Ayelet Waldman and Michael Chabon, will be published in English by Harper Collins.

It will also be translated into at least seven languages and released in different countries simultaneously in June 2017, marking the 50th anniversary of the end of the Six-Day War that led to Israel’s occupation of Palestine.

The visits, which will begin in late February, are organized by Breaking the Silence Israeli NGO, in coordination with other NGOs, activists, journalists and Israeli writers.

Among the international authors who have confirmed their participation are Llosa, British-Indian Hari Kunzru, Pulitzer-winning Australian Geraldine Brooks, U.S. Dave Eggers and British-Nigerian Taiye Selasi.
