J Street Philadelphia Presents: Inhabiting a World of Conflict: Finding Connection Through Loss
March 6, 2022 @ 1:00 pm
Join J Street Philadelphia for a conversation with acclaimed author of Apeirogon Colum McCann and former Co-Directors of The Parents Circle — Families Forum Bassam Aramin and Rami Elhanan.
Bassam and Rami, the protagonists of McCann’s new novel, are former Co-Directors of The Parents Circle — an organization that brings together Israeli and Palestinian families who have suffered the loss of a family member as a result of the conflict. In this conversation — facilitated by J Street Chief of Staff and Philadelphia-localite Adina Vogel-Ayalon — these brave, bereaved fathers will tell of their personal losses and how that led to their deep and enduring relationship. McCann will then dive into how he turned their complex story into — Apeirogon — a tour de force novel about pain, loss and reconciliation.
