April 21, 2015

The veteran journalist and critically acclaimed author of The Lemon Tree brings us another true story of hope in the Palestinian-Israeli impasse. Children of the Stone chronicles a young violist— Ramzi Hussein Aburedwan– who escapes a Palestinian refugee camp and later returns to fulfill his dream: establishing a music school with the help of Israeli musicians including Daniel Barenboim, director of the Berlin State Opera and La Scala. Listen in on this moving conversation about how a love of music transforms and empowers lives in a war-torn land.
