Reading Kanafani in Kentucky

Reading Kanafani in Kentucky invites Louisvillians to participate in a public conversation about the loss of home, involuntary relocation, belonging, and the struggle to return or replace what was lost. Please join us for a reading of a powerful new adaptation of Ghassan Kanafani's Returning to Haifa by playwrights Ismail Khalidi and Naomi Wallace, followed by a facilitated audience conversation about personal experiences with the themes of the play.
