Lawrence Wright’s 2007 Pulitzer Prize–winning book The Looming Tower established him as a leading journalist writing about terrorism in the Middle East. His latest publication, The Terror Years, is a collection of ten powerful pieces originally published in the New Yorker that examine the evolution of terror in the Middle East, from the rise of al-Qaeda in the 1990s to the recent beheadings of reporters and aid workers by ISIS. 

5:00–7:30 p.m.: Come early to enjoy dinner in the DMA Cafe and explore the Keir Collection of Islamic Art, one of the world's most important private collections of Islamic Art, on long-term loan to the DMA. Highlights range from luster pottery and rock crystals to rare manuscripts and miniature paintings.
