The Guantánamo Files: Book Launch, 28 November 2007


The Guantanamo FilesI’m pleased to report that my newly published book The Guantánamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison (already on sale, I hasten to add) will be officially launched on Wednesday, 28 November at Bookmarks, 1 Bloomsbury Street, London WC1B 3QE.

The event starts at 6.30 pm, and I will be joined for a discussion about Guantánamo by Moazzam Begg, former Guantánamo detainee, spokesman for Cageprisoners and author of Enemy Combatant, and Zachary Katznelson, senior counsel for Reprieve, the legal charity that represents dozens of Guantánamo detainees.

Entrance is free, but to reserve a place please phone 020 7637 1848 or email via Bookmarks’ website.

Andy Worthington is the author of The Guantánamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison (published by Pluto Press, distributed by Macmillan in the US, and available from Amazon — click on the following for the US and the UK).

    I’ve RSVP’d to Bookmarks for 4. Rob, Sha and Muun are coming too. Sha has stolen my copy of the book! Rude girl. I’ll have to get another!
    Yours, Erin

    Thanks for your kind invitation to your book launch, Andy. Sorry I cannot attend as I am too far away from London – north of Scotland. Perhaps you will find your way across the border to visit us up here soon – inshallah. Just had an email from a friend in Canada asking how she can order a copy of your book.
    What will be your next project. I wonder. Perhaps something closer to home?
    Yours in solidarity
