Marcello Di Cintio on “Song of the Caged Bird: Words as Resistance in Palestine”

This week Voice of Palestine talks with Marcello Di Cintio from Calgary, an award-winning author and the writer of Song of the Caged Bird: Words as Resistance in Palestine, which is set to be released this month. The book is about his experience, as a Canadian, teaching Palestinian students at the Palestine Writing Workshop in Ramallah. It is also about Palestinian literature, and his desire to understand how words can be used as a tool of resistance. Marcello is the author of three books of travelogue including Walls: Travels Along the Barricades, which won the 2012 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing.
