Author Laila el-Haddad will discuss her work The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey


Howard County author, social activist, policy analyst and journalist Laila el-Haddad received the “Best Arab Cuisine Book” for The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey, originally published in 2013, with photographs by Maggie Schmitt.  Women and men from Gaza tell their stories about cooking, farming and family – stories the San Francisco Book Review calls both heart-warming and heart-wrenching.

In partnership with Montgomery County Middle Eastern American Advisory Group (MEAAG), Office of Community Partnerships and Baltimore Luxor Alexandria Sister City Committee.
