Teaching Arabs, Writing Self by Evelyn Shakir

Teaching Arabs, Writing Self by Evelyn Shakir

Arab American National Museum

$ 14.15


Evelyn Shakir's witty, wise, and beautifully written memoir explores her status as an Arab American woman, from the subtle bigotry she faced in Massachusetts as a second-generation Lebanese whose parents were not only foreign but eccentric, to the equally poignant blend of dislocation and homecoming she felt in Bahrain, Syria, and Lebanon, where she taught American literature to university students.
