Award-winning writer Susan Abulhawa is the author of Mornings in Jenin and The Blue Between Sky and Water. She is the founder of the NGO Playgrounds for Palestine. In the interview below, Abulhawa reflects on the case of Dareen Tatour, the Palestinian poet arrested for incitement who is currently under house arrest.
Editor's note: Dareen Tatour's trial scheduled for September 6th could not proceed due to the lack of an Arabic translator for Dareen's testimoney. Her trial resumes in November.
