House of Stone by Anthony Shadid

Thursday, October 16 at 6:30 pm

Discussion Led by Dr. Ahmed Idrissi Alami and Dr. Lynne Dahmen

Ask for a copy of the book at the WLPL Main Information Desk

The story of a battle-scarred home and a journalist’s wounded spirit, and of how reconstructing the one came to fortify the other. In this bittersweet and resonant memoir, Shadid creates a mosaic of past and present, tracing the house’s renewal alongside the history of his family’s flight from Lebanon and resettlement in America around the turn of the twentieth century. In the process, he memorializes a lost world and provides profound insights into a shifting Middle East. This paperback edition includes an afterword by the journalist Nada Bakri, Anthony Shadid’s wife, reflecting on his legacy.
