"Middle Eastern American Local Authors Series" AND "Capturing Kindness During COVID-1
The Montgomery County, MD Middle Eastern American Advisory Group (MEAAG), Office of Community Partnerships, is a volunteer group helping to connect our ethnic communities through local educational, cultural and humanitarian efforts.
The virtual Middle Eastern American Local Authors Series is a partnership with Montgomery County Public Libraries. The first talk in the series (8/27/20) is on two children's books and the second and third (9/10, 9/24) are on works of adult fiction. The attached flyer provides info on the authors and registration.
The photo contest is open to amateur photographers living or working in the county. Children are also encouraged to participate! Original photos of scenes or acts of kindness related to the pandemic as experienced in the county should be submitted by the September 6th deadline to Middle Eastern Liaison, Arwa.ElBoraei@montgomerycountymd.gov. Monetary prizes for first, second and third place will be awarded and photos will be displayed virtually and if possible in public places. See attached flyer for details.
