Paris Honors Lebanon’s Favorite Son, Khalil Gibran

Paris is going to host the 5th International Conference on the Lebanese-American writer, poet, visual artist, and philosopher Gibran Khalil Gibran. He continues to be a worthy subject of wonder, analysis, and exploration. Long after his unfortunate passing in New York in 1931, the coming International Conference is proof to all of us that Gibran’s legacy is still echoing within us till today.

This year, the International Conference is going to take place at the Institut du Monde Arabe, in Paris, France, on October 3rd, 2019. It’s organized by  The Center for Lebanese Heritage at the American University in Beirut, and it will collaborat with The George and Lisa Zakhem Kahlil Gibran Chair for Values and Peace of the University of Maryland in the United States – according to The 961.

The conference is going to bring together fourteen panelists from around the world, varying from critics, analysts, interpreters, translators. They were selected upon their huge involvement in Gibran’s work and life, and they will present their research on the internationally celebrated thinker, and shed new light on his life and works too.

Gibran is well known for his best-selling book “The Prophet”, it was first published back in 1923 in the United States. It’s one of the best books of all time from my point of view. This book has been translated to numerous languages, marking itself to becoming a-must read book to every avid reader out there.
