In ‘Publisher Sans Frontières’ renowned actors Samuel West and Catherine Kanter thrilled the audience with readings of a selection of English translations of Hebrew and Arabic literature. The readings came from recent publications produced by Ibis Editions, a Jerusalem-based press dedicated to the publication in English of Levant-related literature.
