EVENT: Is peace in the Middle East possible? Print
Image AWARD-WINNING AMERICAN JEWISH AUTHOR WHO LIVED IN THE MIDDLE EAST TO SHARE OBSTACLES & PATHS TO PEACE BETWEEN ISRAELIS & PALESTINIANS

Hear the surprising answer from award-winning speaker Anna Baltzer, former Fulbright scholar, Columbia University graduate, author, grand-daughter of Holocaust refugees, and recent guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Baltzer will present eyewitness reports on the conflict & the exciting nonviolence movement for peace.

She will be signing copies of her acclaimed book, Witness in Palestine: A Jewish American Woman in the Occupied Territories.

Raised with a traditional view on the issue, Baltzer’s perspective changed when she moved to the West Bank to work with nonviolent Palestinians and Israelis. Baltzer’s courageous voice for coexistence and insistence on honest reporting has led to more than 200 television appearances and lectures at more than 500 universities, churches, synagogues, mosques, think tanks, and other policy institutes around the world. She serves on the Board of Directors of The Research Journalism Institute, Grassroots Jerusalem, and The Council for the National Interest.
