This event is sponsored by the Carnegie Library...please note that if you wish to attend, you need to register through their posting here

Tuesday, October 29, 2013 | Other Dates

 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM 

Join us this fall for an exciting 5-part reading and discussion series! The 5-part series will run from October to January.

This book discussion series is part of the Muslim Journeys grant sponsored by the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Registration is required, as space is limited.

Our October selection is 

The Arabian Nights, edited by Muhsin Mahdi, translated by Husain Haddawy. These tales from the alluring and clever Shahrazad are presented in a wonderful translation by Husain Haddawy of Iraq. Read as many of the tales as you like, and we will discuss the history of these stories as well as their literary significance in the East and West.

The discussions will be led by Dr. Christina Michelmore. Dr. Michelmore received her BA from Smith College and her PhD from the University of Pennsylvania, both in history. For seven years she lived and worked in Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Pakistan. Until her retirement in 2013, she was chair of the Department of History at Chatham University here in Pittsburgh. This series is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.Event fee: FreeLocation:
