2020 winner

The book, HABIBI, by Antonio Faccilongo, is a chronicle of a love story set in one of the longest and most complicated contemporary conflicts, the Israeli-Palestinian war. It follows families in Palestine with men serving long sentences in Israeli jails, who smuggle sperm and use in-vitro fertilization to have children.  Most media depict Palestine as a war zone. HABIBI takes a purely humanistic approach to one non-violent response to oppression.  Read more about the project here.
