From the Guardian --

"Roddy Doyle, Esther Freud, David Hare and Ahdaf Soueif will this week
launch the first international literary festival in the occupied
Palestinian territories. Seventeen Irish, British, American, Indian
and Arab authors will visit four West Bank cities for the inaugural
Palestinian Festival of Literature, subtitled: "The power of culture
and the culture of power." Soueif, one of the festival's organisers,
said they had invited "authors who we really liked, and who showed a
concern for the world in general".
Others taking part include the Scottish writer Andrew O'Hagan and
Pankaj Mishra, who is Indian, as well as the British-Sudanese writer
Jamal Mahjoub, and the American-Palestinian poet Suheir Hammad. They
will work with Palestinian writers at events in Ramallah, Jerusalem,
Jenin and Bethlehem."
