AYA GHANAMEH is a Palestinian illustrator, writer and designer from Amman, Jordan, currently based in New York City. Her work moves away from state-centric ways of thinking to center the voices of ordinary people in historical and political narratives. Her debut children’s book, These Olive Trees (Viking Books, 2023), is inspired by the experiences of her family, who cultivated her love of the earth throughout her upbringing in exile.
