Bridging Cultures Kickoff Party!

Monday, Sept. 23rd, 10am-11am, front steps of Brown Library

FREE books to the first 200 students! (Current VWCC only.)  Students can choose from one of the following titles: In the Country of Men (the Bridging Cultures book discussion book), Persepolis, Dreams of Trespass, and House of Stone. Refreshments provided.

Come celebrate Brown Library's newest special collection, the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys. Included in this award is a collection of 25 books and three films centered around Islamic art, literature, history, politics, current events, and religion, as well as a one-year subscription to the Oxford Islamic Studies Online database. We are the only Virginia community college to win this great grant from the NEH!

Please come on down to the Kickoff as well as the rest of the events scheduled this Fall:

  • 9/24, 2pm, Whitman Theater: Film Series—Prince Among Slaves (open to public)
  • 10/8, 2pm, Whitman Theater: Film Series—Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World (open to public)
  • 10/14, 6:30pm, Natural Science Center: Book Discussion—In the Country of Men (open to public)
    • “The truth couldn’t be kept away, it was cunning, sly-natured, seeping through at its own indifferent pace.” In Hisham Matar’s debut novel, a Libyan boy must come to terms with difficult truths about Libya, loyalty, and truth when his father disappears. On the surface a story of the violence and absurdity of life during the rule of Muammar al-Qaddafi, In the Country of Men describes the politics of childhood more than the politics of nations. Just as the plot brilliantly unfolds in unpredictable ways, we are catapulted forward to the next decade. We are left to reflect on the ties that bind us all—the universal embarrassments and frustrations of childhood, the challenge of constructing meaning from memory, and the presence of unavoidable truths. Led by Steven Salaita, Associate Professor of English at Virginia Tech.
  • 10/22, 2pm, Whitman Theater:  Film Series—Persepolis (open to public)
  • 11/5, 2pm, Whitman Theater: Film Series—Koran by Heart: Once Chance to Remember (open to public)
