"Al Makan," the last book by the late Emily Nasrallah will be launched Wednesday, alongside a panel discussion and film projection paying tribute to the famed writer's life and legacy.Published by Dar Onboz, "Al Makan" recounts Nasrallah's childhood and early adulthood, set within a history that extends from the late 19th to early 20th century and includes letters, photos and previously untold stories. Born in 1931, Nasrallah was raised in the south Lebanese village of Kfeir, near Jabal al-Shaykh."For example, this little red flower called 'Skukaa,' [Cyclamen] was her favorite flower and with this you can see what it looked like".Though migration is central to her work, the book shows that Nasrallah never really left Lebanon. This weekend, Nasrallah's childhood home in Kfeir will be opened to the public.Several of Nasrallah's previously unpublished personal stories are included in her final tome. "Al Makan" also documents part of her mother's story. "Al Makan" will be launched at AUB's Issam Fares Institute Sept. 5, 6 p.m.
