“ We look up to see if it is day or night. If stars burn cool and moon does shine, We take to smoke divine and wine. If breath of sun does belch its heat, we boil coffee and prepare to eat. ”

[close] The Middle East Studies Center at Portland State University and the Center for South Asian & Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are co-hosting a monthly book club! We welcome all educators, K-12 teachers, community college professors, and librarians. All books are chosen for their representations of the Middle East, North Africa, or South Asia. We will explore all genres, but emphasize books honored by the Middle East Outreach Council’s Middle East Book Award, which annually recognizes picture books, youth literature, and youth nonfiction. We strive to keep the book options accessible and affordable.

[close] The Chai Circle is a book club in the Santa Cruz/Monterey/San Jose area that seeks to expand notions about Islam, Middle East and the Muslim experience. We intend to explore religion, culture, colonialism, war, gender, societal taboos and the diasporatic experience through ancient and contemporary Islamic/Middle Eastern voices. The group will select a book for the month and meet at a coffee shop or group member's home for the discussions. The Chai Circle is open to everyone, irrespective of religious and political affiliations; feel free to invite your friends. We want to form a loyal group of members, so make sure to invite friends who have a serious interest in participating in the club. Join us if you share our love of books and would like to engage in conversation about Islamic literature in a safe, relaxed environment.

Telegram has brought cutting-edge and authoritative voices from the UK, Spain, North Africa, Korea, Hungary, France, China, the Middle East and beyond to readers with an appetite for "choice international fiction" (The Independent). Award-winning independent Saqi was started in 1983 to bridge the divide between Middle Eastern and Western cultures. Over the years, the list expanded to include writers from the Balkans, Afghanistan, Pakistan, France and the UK, with an expanding fiction list that prompted the establishment of Telegram.
