To my New Orleans Readers
From Andy Young, the editor of Meena Magazine, an excellent bi-lingual journal which I think of as the Paris Review of Arabic Literature:
Meena, the bilingual Arabic/English literary journal Khaled and I co-edit, will be doing an event at NOCCA to kick off the Faulkner Festival. We will feature two great women who have contributed to our first two issues, Dr. Salma Jayussi and Ibtisam Barakat, as well as Stuart LeBlanc on oud. Please mark your calendars and spread the word so that we can show there is an interest in creating an Arabic/English dialogue!Check it out, New Orleans readers...
