The Public Library is just concluding its large-scale, all-branch program recognizing the cultures and people from the Middle East who reside in the Bay Area. But you can still catch a few unusual events at the Main Library. First, on exhibit this month, and ending January 1, 2017 in the Skylight Gallery, Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here: In Defense of Culture, featuring the work of 50 artists and printmakers from around the world, who created their works in commemoration and solidarity to support the booksellers in Baghdad, whose lives were irrevocably changed by a car bomb set off in their street in 2007. And on Tuesday, October 25, enjoy a unique opportunity to experience Arabic violin virtuoso Georges Lammam and poets Elmaz Abinader, Lorene Zarou-Zouzounis and Tarik “Excentrick” Kazaleh performing their work.
