Public Library Project

Educating the public about Palestine and putting a human face on Palestinians is at the core of AMP’s mission. To that end, we have been working hard to place a collection of books  that shed light on the history, culture and politics of Palestine into the permanent collections of public libraries.

The books in AMP’s gift package cover a wide range of topics and genres and come from esteemed professors, a politician, doctors and journalists. Professors Rashid Khalidi and the late Edward Said, former U.S. Congressman Paul Findley, and Time magazine’s former Jerusalem bureau chief are among the authors.


Titles include:

  • In Search of Fatima: A Palestinian Story
    By Ghada Karmi
