Two contributors and two editors of the anthology, "Arab Women Voice New Realities" assembled for a roundtable discussion of the book this Saturday evening past at Aaliya's Books, on Gouraud St. One of several talking points was the multiplicity of identities embraced by Arab women.Launched in November by Turning Point Books, the anthology is comprised of short stories – fiction and non-fiction – written by 27 women from across the Arab world. Abi Assy and Raya Hajj, the two writers on hand for the roundtable, see the role of identity in the writing process in different terms.As a writer communicating to a somewhat broader audience, Abi Assy found herself engaging in an active internal dialogue.Significantly, at the end of Saturday's roundtable, Khalaf noted that this was just an example of how understanding the experiences of women is not singular.
