Understanding the Middle East BC

Understanding The Middle East group meets on the third Monday of  the month at 7 p.m.  It has the purpose of exploring the rich culture of the Middle East through literature (poetry, fiction, memoirs). They do include readings of non-fiction as they try to gain an understanding of history and current events.  Although they read writers from the west, the goal is to discover the many talented authors from middle eastern countries who may not be well known in the U.S.  Even though discussions of politics cannot always be avoided, this is not the focus.

“Saudi Arabia is more and more an irrational state—a place that spawns global terrorism even as it succumbs to an ancient and deeply seated isolationism, a kingdom led by a royal family that can’t get out of the way of its own greed. Is this the fulcrum we want the global economy to balance on?”
