Day of Honey" Book Reading & Dinner
Presenter: First Person Arts
Location: Christ Church Neighborhood House, 20 North American Street

A honeymoon in Baghdad may sound like an oxymoron, but for Annia Ciezadlo it was the start of a rich new life. For six years, during the height of the Iraq War, Annia broke bread with Shiites and Sunnis, warlords and refugees, matriarchs and mullahs while working as a reporter with her Lebanese husband in Baghdad and Beirut. Day of Honey is her memoir of love, conflict, and the hunger for food and friendship in times of war.

Over a Lebanese meal from popular Philadelphia restaurant Sahara Grill, Annia will read from Day of Honey and talk about how food can help us understand the turbulent events in today's Middle East.

A selection of classic Middle Eastern specialties: Fatush Salad, Falafel, Hommus, Baba Gannouj, Tabouleh, Grilled Veggies, and Pita Bread

Christ Church Neighborhood House (20 N. American Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106)
