The Wandering Palestinian
Description
Anan Ameri played a pivotal role in the creation of the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. 

The Wandering Palestinian chronicles her life from 1974 in Beirut, Lebanon to Detroit, Michigan as she learns how to adjust to culture shock, finds her independence, and becomes a driving force in Detroit’s large and politically active Arab American community—an involvement that helped her break away from her isolation, resume her activism, and paved the way for her to become a recognized and respected leader in her community.

Weaving between heartbreak and personal and political triumph, her story sheds light on important solidarity work and organization building in the US.

Praise
“…a riveting, 40 year-long journey through the streets of several American cities recounting tales, both humorous and heartbreaking, that illustrate the acculturation of an idealistic but restless Palestinian woman into American life. Ameri’s writing is crisp and smooth, and I was hooked immediately. I couldn’t put it down. 
— Diana Abouali, PhD.
Director of the Arab American National Museum
