Bust Unveiling and Discussion of Ameen Rihani
Ameen Rihani (1876-1940) was an Arab-American novelist, poet, essayist, and political figure. Upon the centennial publication of his novel,"The Book of Khalid," alumni from the Civic Education and Leadership Fellows and Leaders for Democracy Fellows programs at the Maxwell School made the bust of Rihani available as a symbol of their commitment to fostering Arab-American relations. Following the unveiling of the bust, there will be a discussion of Rihani's work and relevant message today by Professor Mehrzad Boroujerdi, Director of the Middle East Studies Program and Todd Fine, Executive Director of Project Khalid. A reception will follow in the Maxwell Foyer.
