POLITICALLY HOMELESS: Mary Terzian

SAT OCT 7 AT 3:00PM

AGBU/Chicago Center
Yearning to attend college, Mary Terzian leaves her disapproving family in Cairo to take a job with the United Nations in Alexandria. Her work and travels take her around the globe, placing her in a succession of world events, including civil war in the Congo and the Khruschev coup in the USSR. Her universal struggle is told against the backdrop of strict cultural upbringing, political turmoil, and a young woman's love of education propelling her toward independence.
