About the EventAdventures by the Book is honored to partner with Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at San Diego State University for a Culture and Cuisine of Afghanistan Lunch Edventure led by award-winning Afghan-born author Atta Arghandiwal.
The Central Asian country of Afghanistan has a long and complicated history, including the 1978 Soviet invasion which resulted in a mass exodus from the country. Afghan born Atta Arghandiwal was one of ten children born into a military family who fled the country during that tumultuous time. After a temporary relocation to Germany, Atta settled in the United States and became a successful banker and author. Join Atta at Khyber Pass Restaurant to taste some typical Afghani food while discussing Lost Decency, Atta’s memoir that explores his conflicting love and pride for his country of origin with his disdain of its political upheaval. How would you reconcile your love and pride in your country of origin if one day you were forced to flee?
