Watan offers a curated selection of used Palestinian books, ranging from works of non-fiction to prose, poetry to novels, and more. This offering is an extension of our Palestinian Women's Library (available for free use at our Orland Park location).


The Winter Palestine-themed issue is guest edited by Ismail Khalidi and features an exciting list of authors. This is an expanded issue, with more authors and content than we normally publish and a fresh, new look and feel.

Featured in this journal are contributions by Lannan Literary Fellow Hala Alyan, acclaimed poet Najwan Darwish, MacArthur Fellow Natalie Diaz, an interview with Pulitzer Prize winner Hisham Matar, poetry from Naomi Shihab Nye, Nathalie Handal, and George Abraham, comics from Joe Sacco and Leila Abdelrazaq, essays by Ahdaf Soueif and Eileen Myles. Visual art by Palestinian artist Yazan Khalili. We are also publishing the full transcript of Marc Lamont Hill’s recent speech to the United Nations, and work from many more incredible authors: Lina AlSharif, Janan Alexandra, Zaina Alsous, Zeina Azzam, Bryonn Bain, Jehan Bseiso, Kevin Coval, Summer Farah, Sahar Mustafah, Donal O’Kelly, Najla Said, Mandy Shunnarah, Lena Khalaf Tuffaha, and Naomi Wallace.
