The Global Café welcomes The Rev. Dr. Cotton Fite, Chair of the Seraj Library Project 

Palestinians under Occupation: Finding Hope Where There Is Little to be Found

The Rev. Dr. Cotton Fite is an Episcopal priest and clinical psychologist. He received a bachelor’s degree from Williams College in 1960, a Master of Divinity from New York’s General Seminary in 1965 and a Ph.D. from Northwestern in 1981. He is also the chair of the Seraj Library Project, a non-profit organization that provides initiative and support in developing libraries in rural Palestinian villages.

The Seraj Library Project’s mission is to assist in the education of Palestinian villagers of all ages and faiths through the development of high quality and accessible library programs. Cotton's most recent trip to the occupied Palestinian territories was in April 2015, and he will lead a discussion on his work with the Seraj Library Project and what he has learned from listening to the voices of rural Palestinians.
