The Maktoob Series and the Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam Spiritual Center
Cordially invite you to a literary evening on the occasion of the publication of the novel
Time of White Horses
By Ibrahim Nasrallah
In the Neve Shalom Spiritual Center
Dying empires, changing rulers, and bitter struggles between the Turks, the British, Jewish migrants, and Palestinian leaders, both urban and rural—all these serve as the backdrop to this Palestinian Iliad woven of horses born of a windstorm, people born of the dust rising from the horses’ shod hooves, and the stories handed down orally from generation to generation.
The Maktoob Series, which was founded at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, is an innovative and unique program, the only one in Israel today, based on translations to Hebrew of works from Arab culture and literature. The series highlights living and breathing Arabic literature in prose and poetry and makes it accessible to the Israeli reader. The project is the product of the Forum of Arabic–Hebrew Translators, both Jews and Palestinians, founded at the Van leer Jerusalem Institute and continuing to operate there.
