On Tuesday, March 13, 2018, Tania June Sammons presented “A Pilgrimage to Lebanon” to the Tuesday Women’s Club in Savannah, Georgia. She discussed the legacy of Mary Haskell, including her connection to Savannah, as well as Sammons’ recent trip to Lebanon for the Third International Kahlil Gibran Conference at the Lebanese American University in Beirut.
This important International Conference was organized by the Gibran Chair for Values and Peace at the University of Maryland and the Lebanese American University of Beirut. Sammons spoke as an international panelist at the Conference.
After speaking at the Conference, Sammons spent several days traveling the country, including visits to the artist/writer Kahlil Gibran’s home and museum in Besharri, writer Ameen Rihani’s home and museum in Freike, and the ancient ruins in Baalbek, Byblos, and other sites throughout the country.
