Author Emily Nasrallah donates 17 pieces of her work to Saint Joseph University


The presidency of Saint Joseph University in Beirut disclosed a deed of agendum with celebrated author and novelist Emily Nasrallah by which the latter grants USJ the rights of over 17 documents of her literary works to the University’s Oriental Library. The works include articles in the press over the period of 15 years in addition to unpublished research and studies by Nasrallah and all that has been written about her. USJ President Professor Saleem Dakkash described the moment as “very dear” to the academic institution owing to the cultural value in Lebanon and the Arab region of an author whose works portrayed the spirit of the Lebanese village. To be noted, Nasrallah’s works have been translated into several languages, mainly, German, Finnish, English, Thai and Spanish among others. Pleased and relieved with this step, Nasrallah said “these manuscripts are now in safe hands”. Dakkash on the other hand announced the hosting of a ceremony to inaugurate the pavilion devoted for the author at the Oriental Library. (An Nahar, 23 June 2015)
