Sunday Seminar: Mother of Fire, with Jean Davison

Sunday, Apr 14, 2013 11:30a to 12:30p

Anthropologist and author Jean Davison discusses her recent book, Mother of Fire: An Iraqi Woman's Journey from Mosul to Malawi. Based on the life of an actual person, Mother of Fire describes the trials of Amina Rassam, a rebellious young Iraqi woman who defies her family's wishes, leaves Mosul in 1898, survives a harrowing camel caravan to Damascus and a storm-plagued trip to France, where she joins a Christian religious order.
