What might Palestine look like in 2048, a century after the Nakba when 700,000 Palestinian Arabs were forced to flee their homes? In Palestine +100, ten contemporary Palestinian writers respond to this question through speculative fiction; considering the repercussions of war, economic blockades, humanitarian crises and political isolation. Two of the writers will read from and discuss their stories: Selma Dabbagh (Out of It) and Anwar Hamed (Jaffa Prepares Morning Coffee), along with the anthology’s editor Basma Ghalayini.
