As previously reported, the finalists of the American National Book Awards 2023 made a joint statement calling for a ceasefire in the war between Israel and Palestine. American writer Anne Boyer resigned her position as poetry editor of The New York Times in support of Palestine and condemnation of Israel’s war against the people of Gaza. She wrote her statement in a letter.


The conflict began following an attack by Hamas on October 7 into southern Israel, resulting in over 1,200 deaths, predominantly among civilians, and the capture of 240 hostages, including infants, children, women, soldiers, elderly individuals, and Thai agricultural workers, according to the Associated Press. Israel retaliated with an extensive aerial bombardment throughout Gaza and a ground offensive in the north. The Health Ministry in the Hamas-governed Gaza reports that over 13,300 Palestinians have been killed, with approximately two-thirds being women and children.
