The next phase begins! Three more characters will be identified in the next 10 days and the interviewing and field work will begin right after. Once the next three chapters are completed, more than 50 percent of Voices of Jordan would have been completed. Most of the photographs by Salah Malkawi for the first three chapters have also been completed.
I was invited to present and discuss Voices of Jordan in New York. The book talk was hosted by supporter Susan Wicht who focuses on Arabic language and education. The event was attended by teachers, businessmen, patrons, authors, activists and other New Yorkers. I used prezi to present images and main themes and then we opened it up to questions and discussions. Many of the attendees were enthusiastic to learn more about lives of people in the Middle East. Three educational institutions in New York have showed interest in holding book events when the book is published. Meanwhile, the search for a publisher for Voices of Jordan continues. I would like to thank Susan Wicht again for her support and for hosting this event in New York.
