The In-Between Book Launch JLM & TLV

May 19th and May 30th, 2024 – Happy to announce the book launch of The In-Between in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem together with Lily Shehady and Sandra Gugić.

Three writers embarked upon a literary dialogue about identity and belonging: Lily Shehady, a Christian Arab from Nazareth; Sarah Sassoon, an Iraqi Jewish Olah in Jerusalem, and Sandra Gugić, and atheist with Austrian-Serbian background living in Tel Aviv-Yafo.

Where does history begin, with the personal, with the political, or with the language? What it is the language of belonging? These shared questions complement each other and create a space, a room, and a landscape. Literature needs not only a room of one’s own but passageways leading to the other’s story.
