Don’t miss the third edition of the World Nomads series—FIAF’s annual exploration of transculturalism, intended as a dialogue between cultures. This year we explore Lebanon through a program of literature, music, talks, cinema, architecture, and visual arts.

Lebanese author Alexandre Najjar joins us to discuss his multifaceted, award-winning career and read from some of his works. Born in Lebanon, Najjar now splits his time between Paris and Beirut, and serves as director of Beirut’s French-language monthly L’Orient littéraire. His recent awards include the Prix Méditerranée and the Grand Prix de la Francophonie Hervé Deluen awarded by l’Académie Française, both in 2009.
