I apologize for the cross-posting � I�m trying to disseminate this information as widely as possible.
On Saturday, March 3rd, 2007 the Barony of Bhakail (Philadelphia, PA) is holding a Middle Eastern Schola. The event will be an entire day of classes on many subjects of especial interest to those interested in middle eastern cultures and the lands that border them. The final list of classes being offered is at the end of this message.
For further information on the event, please check the online event announcement at: http://eastkingdom.org/event-detail.html?eid=1354
The site opens at 10 AM, and classes begin at 11 AM and end at 7 PM. A dayboard will run most of the day, but there will be no feast. Many groups are arranging to meet at local middle eastern restaurants for dinner.
If you have any questions about the classes, you can email me at: dzaccagnino@...
. The schedule for classes will (hopefully) be posted on the event announcement site or the Barony�s website sometime next week.
I hope to see many of you there!
