'Fast Times in Palestine' author Pamela Olson to speak in Columbus

Pamela Olson grew up in a small town in Oklahoma. On a post-college backpacking trip through Palestine, her conceptions of history, politics, and human nature were turned upside down when she stumbled into the middle of the conflict between Palestine and Israel.

Pamela J. Olson's book 'Fast Times in Palestine' was named a Top 10 Travel Book of 2013 by Publishers Weekly.

Olson tells the story in her book Fast Times in Palestine: A Love Affair with a Homeless Homeland. "The strength of the narrative lies in Olson’s investigation of the personal and mental effects of oppression and war on herself and her newfound friends," says Kirkus Reviews. "An empathetic, intriguing memoir."

Olson will visit Columbus to talk about her book on Sunday and Monday:

A question and answer session will follow the book discussion. Copies of Olson's book will be available for signing after each event. Both events are free and open to all. Donations are gratefully accepted to help keep the book tour going.

Other cities in Olson's book tour are available on her blog. For more information about Olson's visit to Columbus, please contact Connie at cmhammond11@att.net or Earl at earlword@yahoo.com.
