February 10, 2024by Team EKC0

Seventeen independent bookshops across the United Kingdom will hold events on Valentine’s Day to raise money for the PEN Emergency Fund, which will be ring-fenced to provide support to writers at risk who are in and from Palestine.

The organisers of the campaign Valentines4Palestine have announced that for every £1,000 collected, the PEN Emergency Fund will be able to provide an emergency grant to a Palestinian writer at risk.

Some of the participants include Bookbag in Exeter, Paned o Gê in Cardiff, Burley Fisher Books in Hackney, bookhaus in Bristol and the Hastings Bookshop in Hastings.
