Northern California Tour a Huge Success!

September 24, 2012

Miko Peled and Alice Walker in Berkeley, CA September 19, 2012.

Miko has just finished three fabulous events in northern California over the past week, including a lecture September 18 at the Resource Center for Nonviolence in Santa Cruz hosted by the Palestine-Israel Action Committee, a book signing in Berkeley on September 19 organized by The Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA), and a reading September 20 at Time Tested Books in Sacramento. The General’s Son sold out at all of these events, which is perhaps not surprising to those who have had the opportunity to read the book or to hear Miko speak before. His insightful remarks were recognized with a standing ovation at the MECA event. Helena Cobban, CEO of the publisher Just World Books was pleased to be able to attend that evening’s festivities and to introduce Miko to the full house audience of 100-120 people. Alice Walker, renowned author and writer of the foreword to Miko’s memoir was also present and is featured in the photograph to the left. You can buy the book online at Just World Books’ webstore.

    December, 24, 2015 –

    Mr. Peled, I began reading this book on my radio program last Saturday (Free Radio Santa Cruz, streaming on, 101.3 in Santa Cruz California). A low power, pirate radio service but at least it’s getting out there. Will take up where I left off in chapter two this weekend, 11:00 am PST. Chapter one is available in my archives at

    It joins the list of my previous readings of other outstanding works — “Goliath” by M. Blumenthal, “They Dare to Speak Out” by Congressman P. Findley, “Witness In Palestine” by A. Baltzer, et al.

    Saw your presentation in Santa Cruz in the Fall of 2012, RCNV when I purchased the book; love your videoed interviews and talks. I’m the guy who texted you a while back about the YouTube filth which denied that there was ever a massacre in Deir Yasin — any developments on that front ?

    Thanks so much, Ren
