Bus Boy and Poets


In From Beirut to America, author Edward Challita discusses his birth in Beirut, from Christian French/Lebanese parents who lived in West Beirut as French citizens during the devastating civil war in the 1970s. This is the story of Edward’s survival and escaping war from a certain disaster. His life story carries a message of hope, showing that people, no matter what dire circumstances they find themselves in, can succeed despite overwhelming odds.

Edward Callita is joining us on the Busboys stage to share his story of survival and hope. Copies of the book will be available for purchase during and after the event, and Challita will be signing following the program.

This event is free and open to all. Our program begins at 6:00 pm, and will be followed by an audience Q&A. Copies of FROM BEIRUT TO AMERICA will be available for purchase before and after the event. Please note that this event is IN PERSON and will NOT be livestreamed.

We ask that guests RSVP in order to receive direct updates about the event from Busboys and Poets Books
