Book signing and Presentation by Qais Akbar Omar, author of internationally acclaimed memoir,
A Fort of Nine Towers
Learn of a family’s remarkable survival against unbelievable odds as Qais Akbar Omar, manager of a family carpet business in Kabul, Afghanistan, tells the story of living through a brutal civil war and Taliban rule from his memoir, A Fort of Nine Towers, which New York Times Book Review says is "…mind-boggling yet matter-of-fact. "A Fort of Nine Towers" is the memoir of a childhood in '90s Afghanistan - a riveting story of war as seen through a child's eyes and summoned from an adult's memory." With the help of pictures of the fort of nine towers and other sites mentioned in the book, Omar will explain why it is important for Americans to understand Afghanistan’s rich culture, history, and traditions. Autograph copies of his book will be available for purchase.
