Celebrate Arab Heritage Month. Join us when author Soha Al-Jurf discusses her book Even My Voice is Silence.  This book talks about her trip to her father’s Palestinian village.  She believes she is embarking on a journey that will help her reconcile the conflicted parts of her identity as a Palestinian-American Muslim woman. Instead, what she had anticipated would be the end of her long journey proves only to be the beginning of a search for her true self, mired in the painful realization of what it means to be a refugee.  Al-Jurf offers readers a rare and intimate perspective on the daily challenges of living in Occupied Palestine. This event is co-sponsored by the Arab Cultural & Community Center and the Arab Heritage Month Committee.  For more information visit Related Exhibit: Born among Mirrors – Lebanon 50 Years After. Now through November 4, Main Library, Jewett Gallery.  A book sale by Readers Books follows the event.
