Description

“Islamic Culture and Creativity”


One of the world’s leading experts on Islamic art, Sabiha Al Khemir, the DMA’s Senior Advisor of Islamic Art, has worked at the Met, the Louvre and the British Museum.  She will discuss her novel, The Blue Manuscript, which takes readers on a quest for the legendary blue manuscript of medieval Islam.  New York Times bestselling author of The Tenth Parallel, Eliza Griswold will discuss her recent journey to Afghanistan with photographer Seamus Murphy to learn about Afghani women and collect their landays or folk couplets.  She collected these poems, along with photographs from their journey into her book I am the Beggar of the World: Landays from Contemporary Afghanistan.
