Here are a few highlights of joyous moments since the release of my book, The Syrian Jewelry Box…. I invite you to celebrate with me as my story continues to help others and to bridge the gap between our cultures by sharing our similarities.

Feeling pretty proud and excited as my book continues to circulate. Special thank you to Abigail Altman, Grant Rosenberg, and the wonderful circulation team of the American Library in Paris! In a few months, my book will be displayed on their shelf!!! I instantly felt at home by the American Library in Paris’s gregarious staff, and found it a cozy environment to browse through their …collection of over 100000 items…

What an honor. I am so grateful. Look at this! My story is now part of Shakespeare and Company– “…the best known bookshop in the world.” My book will soon be available to tourists et al. :))

I’m excited to let you know that The Abbey Bookshop has embraced my story. A tiny but char​i​smatic bookshop lured me beyond its two chock-full
​high​ piled​ book stacks adorning the arched window entrance. I snaked
through to not bump over ​more ​stack​s​ of books. Then I happend upon its
friendly owner, Brian.
