JLF: We Shall Not Hate
Izzeldin Abuelaish in conversation with Michael Patrick MacDonald, introduced by Stéphane Lessard, Consul General of Canada in Denver
Writer's participation is sponsored by Consul General of Canada in Denver
In a world torn apart by discord, two writers attempt a leap of faith through their books. Harvard-trained Palestinian doctor Izzeldin Abuelaish, whose three daughters were killed during the Israeli incursion into Gaza, still advocates for reconciliation between Israel and Palestine in his book I Shall Not Hate. In conversation with Irish-American Michael Patrick MacDonald, whose bestselling memoirs All Souls and Easter Rising speak of the cycle of violence, poverty, and the racism of his childhood in South Boston and how he escaped, they speak of reconciliation and the way forward.
