About this event

Daughter of Edward W. Said, the Columbia University professor who until his death in 2003 was a cultural critic and public intellectual known for his book Orientalism, Najla guides the audience through her coming-of-age story. She shares her journey from growing up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan to becoming an Arab-American on her own terms.
