MES presents: Todd Fine
220 Eggers Hall
Celebrate with us the centennial anniversary of the first Arab-American novel: Ameen Rihani’s The Book of Khalid (1911). The story is of two Arab boys who immigrate to New York City and confront the challenge of American culture. Project Khalid is an effort to commemorate this milestone in the history of Arab-American life and literature. Todd Fine, the project's director, will introduce The Book of Khalid and will discuss the novel’s relevance to the contemporary crisis in the Arab-American relationship. Todd Fine is the director of Project Khalid (www.projectkhalid.org). He is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Harvard University and holds a Master’s Degree in International Relations from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University. He also organized and developed the Global Zero campaign on nuclear weapons, which launched in Paris, France in December 2008.
