Understanding the Middle East (in store)

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.

For more information, contact Tina Martin.  New members are always welcome.

This month we are reading A Bridge Through Time, Laila Abou-Saif (not available from Quail Ridge Books)
