Event Details

Ahlam Bsharat is a Palestinian writer who was born in 1975 in the village of Tammun in the Jenin province of Northern Palestine, where she grew up. After completing a Master's Degree in Arabic Literature at An-Najah National University in Nablus, she worked as a teacher for several years, and at present commutes between Tammun and Ramallah, where she works for the Ministry of Culture. Besides poetry, picture books, short stories, novels, and memoirs, she has written a number of television and radio scripts. Her books have received many awards and recommendations. Ismee Alharakee Farasha (translated into the English as Code Name: Butterfly) was included in the IBBY Honor List for 2012, a biennial selection of outstanding, recently published books from more than seventy countries. The book was also the runner up for the Etisalat Award For Arabic Children's Literature. Bsharat has been active in numerous cultural forums, and her craft has taken her to Belgium and France, where she was artist in residence. She has also led many creative writing workshops for children and adults.

 

When she was a little girl, Ahlam Bsharat dreamed of becoming a singer, a painter, a fashion designer, or a farmer like her mother. But all along she was on her way to becoming an author. In writing she found the way to make all her dreams come true.
