Not reading the book as part of  the Center’s The Big Read Book Club? No worries. The novel and the setting of Cairo Egypt in the 1950s will be explored through creating art. A list of characters, scenes, and their features  will be provided. 

Next up will be two book Poster Art workshops with artist Raul Baltazar on Saturday,  March 16 and Saturday, March 23. 

The Ahwah House, an evening of scenes from the book in a traditional  Egyptian coffee house setting to bring the book’s main setting to life on Friday, March 15 from 6:30-8:30pm. For families and educators. 

Stay tuned for those project details and save the dates!
