Talk: 9 am; Walk: 10 am; Book:In the Land of Invisible Women by Quanta Ahmed

  • December 7, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • East West Cafe, Howarth Park

Because of the winter months we are starting later.  We will meet at the restaurant East West and discuss the book.  Then we walk across the street for a vigorous 1 hour walk.  Some participants decided to only do part of the walk.  If you plan to order something at the restaurant, it is easier if you bring cash since they will only generate one ticket for us. Please comment with any questions! -Lisa

Unexpectedly denied a visa to remain in the United States, Qanta Ahmed, a young British Muslim doctor, becomes an outcast in motion. On a whim, she accepts an exciting position in Saudi Arabia. This is not just a new job; this is a chance at adventure in an exotic land she thinks she understands, a place she hopes she will belong.


$1-$2 for attendees (goes toward the dues required for us to use this Meetup website).

    A very lively and warm discussion! Let's see if I can remember names... Pip, AJ, Judy, Leena, Christen, Jan, Julie and myself (Melissa). And our walk in the brisk morning sun was very enjoyable! Thanks so much!

    Just got my daughter's basketball schedule for the weekend tournament, won't be able to make this Saturday. Enjoy what should be a very interesting conversation!

      Basketball season came fast after Thanksgiving. I wasn't sure until last minute about ours, either. Hope you have a great weekend.

    Hi to bookites!
    Can't make it for what I think is going to be a meeting of interesting conversations about our individual journeys into Saudi life.
