Book: Arab Women Voice New Realities
By Roseanne Saad Khalaf and Dima Nasser.

The discourse of Arab women speaking out, refusing to be silent, and voicing their experiences, is alive and ever-growing.

Arab Women Voice New Realities presents an archive of living, breathing stories of women making promises and confessions, women coming to terms with traumatic pasts, negotiating complex present realities, and imagining alternative liberating futures.

This collection attempts to bridge the gap among women writers, seasoned and novice. It spans a large geographical space, uncovers the depth of distinct experiences, and ultimately offers a platform for voice and visibility to the new Arab woman.

These stories are instantiations, records, and they will never be told in the same way again. Seldom do we get the chance to see a literary project through in a relatively short period of time, especially one which involves many writers, translators, artists, designers and publishing members.

11 Conversations with Mario Haddad, Georges Nasser, Mounir Maasri, Jocelyne Saab, Jean-Claude Codsi, Ghassan Salhab, Mohamed Soueid, Ziad Doueiri, Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, Nadine Labaki, Georges Schoucair.

Speaking to a large readership, from the general public to the experts, Cinema in Lebanon offers detailed analyses of movies, an essential contextualisation, and access to exclusive visual archives.

Book: Levantine Harvest by Lara Ariss
Extensive research led Lara Ariss to decide on the Levantine cuisine as the topic of her first cookbook. The choice was rather obvious given Lara’s Lebanese roots and her appreciation for fresh fruits and harvest, and the balanced food that abound in the Levantine cuisine.

The topic of Levantine Cuisine being wide,
Lara chose to tackle it from a specific angle — that of seasons. Furthermore, Lara’s extensive study of
Levantine recipes led her to realize that recipes are written in complex steps and language that need an
update that speaks to the modern lifestyle.

Hence, in addition to the seasons, Lara decided on simplicity:

-'Hummus With Sun-Dried Tomato Confit: Hummus bi Tahini is probably the best-known Middle
Eastern mezze staple, a creation of Levantine and Egyptian Arabs. In this recipe, I have moved away from the traditional Lebanese topping — fried chopped or minced lamb meat with pine nuts and olive oil — to
an equally delicious, vegetarian friendly-version.'
(P. 72).

-'Pumpkin Kebbeh: This popular vegan version of kebbeh, which does away with fresh minced lamb,
was initially created for lent. In the past, preparing kebbeh was a laborious process that involved pounding the main ingredient, usually the meat, and the burghul (cracked wheat) in a mortar and pestle.' (P. 132).

Book: The Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookbook
A collection of vegetarian dishes influenced by Middle Eastern flavors from Salma Hage, author of the bestselling classic, The Lebanese Kitchen, also published by Phaidon.

A definitive, fresh and approachable collection of 150 traditional recipes from an authoritative voice on Middle Eastern home cooking, Salma Hage’s new book is in line with the current Western trends of consciously reducing meat, and the ancient Middle Eastern culture of largely vegetarian, mezze style dining.

Traditionally, the Middle Eastern diet consisted largely of vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, pulses, grains and legumes. Salma simplifies this fast becoming popular cuisine with easily achievable recipes, many with vegan and gluten-free options.

Drawing inspiration from ancient and prized Phoenician ingredients, from grassy olive oil to fresh figs and rich dates, this book offers an array of delicious breakfasts and drinks, mezze and salads, vegetables and pulses, grains and desserts. Salma shows how to easily make the most of familiar everyday fruits and legumes, as well as more exotic ingredients now widely available outside of the Middle East, with nourishing recipes so flavourful and satisfying they are suitable for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

Book: Un Fauteul sur la Seine, by Amin Maalouf
En racontant la vie et les aventures des dix-huit personnages qui se sont succédé au 29e fauteuil de l’Académie française depuis 1634, Amin Maalouf ne retrace pas seulement cette «généalogie en partie fictive» dont parlait son prédécesseur Lévi-Strauss; il nous fait revivre de manière charnelle, incarnée, quatre siècles d’histoire de France.

Si «un roman est un miroir que l’on promène le long d’un chemin», selon le mot de Stendhal, le roman de la France que nous relate ici l’auteur est une Légende des Siècles à partir d’un fauteuil.

Son premier occupant se noie dans la Seine, Montherlant se suicide dans son appartement avec vue sur la Seine, et l’Académie elle-même siège dans un petit périmètre longé par la Seine, entre le Louvre et le quai Conti; unité d’un lieu à partir duquel se déploie le kaléidoscope d’une histoire en train de se faire.

Le pouvoir des rois et des cardinaux, des hommes d’épée et des négociateurs, l’autorité grandissante ou déclinante des philosophes et des savants, l’influence des poètes, des librettistes, des dramaturges et des romanciers: autant de visages de la gloire qui nous parlent des âges différents de la Nation.

Les conflits d’idées et d’égos, les cabales pour faire trébucher Corneille, Voltaire ou Hugo, les intrigues de couloir et les histoires d’amour contrariées tissent la trame de cette si singulière histoire de France. On revisite ici la querelle du Cid et la révocation de l’Edit de Nantes, la Fronde et le jansénisme, l’expulsion des jésuites et l’émergence de la franc-maçonnerie, la Révolution de 1789, l’insurrection du 13 Vendémiaire et le coup d’état du 18 Brumaire, le Second Empire, la guerre de 1870 et la Commune de Paris, l’invention de l’anesthésie et celle des funérailles nationales, l’Affaire Dreyfus et les grandes guerres du XXe siècle...

A partir d’un simple fauteuil, lieu de mémoire fragile et chaleureux posé sur les bords de la Seine, Amin Maalouf nous fait redécouvrir les riches heures du passé de la France, la permanence de son «génie national», ainsi que ses constantes métamorphoses. "
