Book: Add El Ba7r B7ebbak by Zeina Fayad
En l’an 2030, une jeune Beyrouthine se sent constamment inadaptée dans son quartier, jusqu’au jour où elle croise dans la rue une femme, Anastasia, qui est son sosie et qui l’ignore complètement.

Un beau matin, elle réussit à faire sa connaissance, ce qui va l’entraîner dans une série d’aventures hilarantes et rocambolesques.

Dans un univers étrange et décalé, notre héroïne va rencontrer fortuitement à travers Anastasia un homme charmant et « bleu » comme l’océan, nommé Lucien. Complices, ils découvrent ensemble une communauté rebelle qui vit secrètement dans les souterrains de la ville et se prépare à renverser l’ordre établi sur la terre. Réussiront-ils à les aider? Leur amour sera-t-il assez fort pour changer le monde?

(Pour les +12 ans)

Book: Seasons of Lebanon by Jamal Saidi
Lebanon: Four Seasons is an entrancing visual journey that presents the uncovered beauty found in the four seasons of the Mediterranean gem that is Lebanon.

Captured through the lens of renowned Lebanese photographer Jamal Saidi, these vivid images tell the story of a precious natural heritage to be cared for, cherished, and shared with the world.

While much of Lebanon’s beauty is boldly visible, far more lies hidden from the hustle and bustle of humanity, awaiting discovery. Lebanon’s Four Seasons showcases how much the people of Lebanon have to be grateful for, and how much nature helps to define what it truly means to be Lebanese.

Book: Arab Women Voice New Realities
New Release
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.

Book: Dessine-moi un proverbe (For Children)
Ce livre est le fruit de la collaboration entre l’auteur et écrivain Caroline Torbey, et l’illustratrice Renée Thomas, fières de leur pays, de sa culture et surtout de son héritage!

Comme l’indique le titre du livre, premier tome d’une série à suivre, il s’agit ici d’expliquer les proverbes libanais aux enfants sous forme de petite histoire simple et illustrée. Le but du livre est de transmettre et de renforcer la culture libanaise auprès des enfants et des adultes au Liban, mais également et surtout à travers la diaspora.

Avec l’appui du « ministère de la Culture » et celui du « ministère de l’Education et de l’Enseignement Supérieur », il prend un aspect non seulement ludique mais surtout pédagogique avec des notions poussées de géographie, de vocabulaire et surtout, de traditions libanaises.

Un livre qui enchantera petits et grands. Bonne lecture!
