Discover more from Palestine is Still the Issue
Join me for my UK book tour
UPDATED list of dates and venues where I am speaking about, selling and signing my new book "Weaponising Anti-Semitism."
After my book launch in London in June, there was massive demand for me to talk about Weaponising Anti-Semitism from all around the country. Before I realised what was happening, this had turned into a UK book tour.
I am giving a multimedia presentation, looking at primary sources from the book’s footnotes, and giving an overview of its argument. New dates are being added to the tour all the time: see below for details of how to get in touch if you’re interested in arranging one.
Come and hear more about the book Israel lobby has tried to ban!
See below for the list of confirmed venues with links to register where applicable. Copies of my book will be on sale and I will be signing after each talk.
