Radical reads is a reading initiative designed to help us engage with writing that will strengthen political literacy and increase democratic participation.
We consider our selves an intermittent book club, that will run for 6 weeks at a time, allowing us to introduce our audiences to authors and literature on a range of topics.
Our book focus has been “Palestine: A Socialist Introduction”. This book is available from Haymarket Books, and the e-book is downloadable for FREE!
To conclude our exploration of “Palestine: A Socialist Introduction”, we will be meeting in-person with Hazem Jamjoum to further delve into the topic.
