With ten festivals in ten years, PalFest has featured over 200 writers and artists from Palestine and around the world. To celebrate a decade’s work, and to mark the 50th anniversary of the Occupation and the 100th of the Balfour Declaration, PalFest presents This is Not a Border; a collection of writings on and from Palestine by some of the world’s most distinguished voices.
Published by Bloomsbury in London and New York, This is Not a Border is for sale in Palestine before its release anywhere else – during the Festival and at a special price.
Outside Palestine, you can pre-order it from Bloomsbury UK HERE and get 30% off at checkout with the code: PALFEST
