President Aoun honors novelist Emily Nasrallah with order of the cedar


President Michel Aoun granted novelist and writer Emily Nasrallah the Commander of the National Order of the Cedar in recognition of her literary contributions. The minister of justice, Salim Jreisati, representing President Aoun handed Nasrallah the medal at her residence in the Hamra neighborhood of Beirut instead of the presidential palace in Baabda due to her delicate health condition. Nasrallah thanked President Aoun for his initiative wishing him success in his leadership. To note, Nasrallah (born in 1931) is a Lebanese author from the town of Kfeir, South Lebanon. She published a number of novels and children’s books and received many awards, including Poet Saeed Akl’s Prize in Lebanon, Fairuz Magazine Prize, Khalil Jibran Prize from the Ara Heritage Union, Australia and the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) Prize for ‘A Cat’s Diary’ novel.
