Author and activist, Susan Abulhawa was born to refugees of the Six Day War of 1967, when her family's land was seized and Israel captured what remained of #Palestine, including Jerusalem. She moved to the USA as a teenager, graduated in biomedical science and established a career in medical science. In July 2001, #SusanAbulhawa founded Playgrounds for Palestine, a children's organisation dedicated to upholding The Right to Play for Palestinian children. Her much loved books include "Mornings in Jenin", a book of poetry titled "My Voice Sought the Wind", "The Blue Between Sky and Water", and her highly anticipated upcoming work, "Against The Loveless World". Susan is also a signatory to and active participant in the #BDS campaign, which calls for an economic and cultural boycott of Israel.
