Emily Shihadeh's Grapes and Figs Are In Season is a nostalgic dream of tattered memories woven together by her unique blend of humor, storytelling and song.
Using her gift for intimate conversation with an audience, Emily paints a vivid picture of her youth in the village of Ramallah, which is now a part of the occupied West Bank. It is a story told with love and laughter, despite the loss of family and homeland.
