Marston in Palestine!

In 2009 Elsa Marston visited Palestine for olive picking and to visit PBBY and implement some activities with them. It turned to be a very rich visit.

PBBY organized a public lecture where Elsa spoke about the picture of Palestinians in American children literature.

Elsa had creative writing workshops with teachers with the Ministry of Education and with the students with UN Technical College for Girls in Ramallah, in Birzeit University and the Arab American University in Jenin. Moreover Elsa had a very interesting meeting with UNRWA students I Jerusalem where she read from her book “Santa Clause in Baghdad.”

PBBY was happy to have the American writer Elsa Marston visit Palestine for the second time in November 2010 as a guest of Tamer Institute.

PBBY organized a meeting where Elsa gave a lecture on "Five Outstanding American Writers and how they Deal with Tough Subjects: War, Poverty, Discrimination…” The authors discussed were Walter Dean Myers, Margaret Peterson Haddix; Sherman Alexie, Karen Hesse, Laurie Halse Anderson.
