‘The General’s Son’ a Sellout Success in Seattle
Just World Books publisher Helena Cobban announced that Miko’s memoir The General’s Son was so popular in the Pacific Northwest that all the copies that were shipped out for the five day book tour sold out at the first event at the University Temple United Methodist Church on October 1. There were many great sponsors for the evening’s presentation, including: Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), Mideast Forum Ministry at St. Mark’s Cathedral, SUPER UW, The Palestine Task Force of the Church Council of Greater Seattle, Kadima, Episcopal Bishop’s Committee for Israel/Palestine, Palestine Solidarity Committee, American Friends Service Committee, The Committee for Human Rights UW, Voices of Palestine, University Temple United Methodist Church, and the Seattle National Lawyers’ Guild.
Journalist Alma Khasawnih, who attended Miko’s book event at the church, describes his talk in her article for the Seattle Globalist. She says his presentation is “almost like The Question of Palestine 101″ as he “begins with some background on Zionism’s movement into Palestine, then the partition of Palestine in 1948 and its occupation by what we now know as Israel.” But, true to form, Alma notes that “his narrative goes beyond politics to a personal story of self discovery.”
Keep your eye on this blog for updated info regarding Miko’s upcoming book events around the US and beyond. Helena assures us that she will be sending out far more books to make sure there are plenty on hand for his presentations in the future, but remember you can always purchase The General’s Son for yourself or for a gift here.
