Wednesday, July 11, 7:00pm at Word Up Books. The address is 4157 Broadway, Washington Heights, Manhattan, New York.

This will probably be my last book event before Fast Times is re-published in the spring by Seal Press. Certainly the last time I’ll be signing and selling the limited-edition self-published version. (As per my contract, I won’t be allowed to sell the original version after August 1.) Would love to see you there, and please feel free to spread the word!

Details and RSVP on the event’s Facebook page.

Here’s the official description:

Pamela Olson, author of the award-winning* Fast Times in Palestine, will be reading from her book and speaking about her experiences working as a journalist in the Palestinian territories during the second Intifada. Her book is an unorthodox combination of memoir, journalism, and politics, with a dash of romance and adventure.

Olson grew up in small town Oklahoma, studied physics at Stanford University, and discovered Palestine during a solo backpacking trip from Cairo to Istanbul in 2003. It has been the focus of her life ever since. Learn more at her website:

* Fast Times in Palestine was just chosen as winner of the IndieReader Discovery Awards in the Travel category.
