STOP PRESS – Breaking News!!

I am delighted to share this exciting news with you. All of you!

Meet Me in Gaza has just been shortlisted for a Literary award!

The Memo Palestine Book Award is an annual prize for the best book about Palestine published in English. The prize will be announced in London in November. I’ll probably still be here, in the Central African Republic, where I’m just starting  to take notes from a  new book. But I’ll hear all about the prize-giving on the night itself.

This is a wonderful confirmation of Meet Me in Gaza, which has had some wonderful reviews. It’s also just what you need to hear as you start the journey of writing another book….

    Congratulations Louisa. I discovered your book whilst reading The Economist and promptly downloaded it to my Kindle. I couldn’t put it down. It was the first book I have read about the conflict and now I am hooked. For example, I just watched the beautiful documentary ” Five Broken Cameras” last night. In any event, congrats again…your book really does deserve to win!

    Fantastic news Louisa, and well deserved.
    Us Edinburghans, Leithers and Portobellans are all very proud of you and the work you put into it.
