IIHA Event: “The Last Supper: The Plight of Christians in Arab Lands:” Book Reading & Conversation

In this next event in the IIHA Spring 2016 Event Series, Global Migration in the 21st Century: Challenges and Opportunities, Journalist and author Klaus Wivel will discuss his new book, “The Last Supper: The Plight of Christians in Arab Lands.”
“Klaus Wivel is a Danish journalist who has been the New York correspondent for Weekendavisen, one of Denmark’s most prestigious newspapers. He has written on a wide range of topics, with a focus on Israel-Palestine and the Middle East. Alarmed by scant attention paid to the hardships endured by the 7.5 million Christians in the Middle East, journalist Klaus Wivel traveled to Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, and the Palestinian territories on a quest to learn more about their fate. With the increase of religious violence in the past few years, this book is a prescient and unsettling account of a severely beleaguered religious group living, so it seems, on borrowed time. Wivel asks, Why have we not done more to protect these people?”
