SWANA honors the diverse cultures, traditions and histories of Southwest Asian and North African heritage. Throughout the month, enjoy a diverse array of lectures, films, cooking demonstrations and performance programs for all ages at every library location.
During SWANA, view a collection of outstanding short films from the Arab Film Festival, listen to beats by Opium Sabbah, son of the legendary Algerian DJ Cheb I Sabbah, attend calligraphy demonstrations, and attend a presentation about the role and status of Muslim women today.
Fantastic food programs include sampling dishes by Chef Aliza, made with with her unique Israeli spice blends, Palestinian food tastings and hummus making classes.
