TWU Slates 24th Annual International Fest

TWU Slates 24th Annual International Fest

10/18/02


DENTON — Texas Woman's University will become a melting pot of cultures on Nov. 7 during the 24th Annual International Festival and Food Fair. Admission to the fair, which is open to the public, is $10 for adults, $7 for students and $3 for children under 12.

The fair will take place from 5:30-9 p.m. in Hubbard Hall and along with dinner, activities will include folk music, performances by the TWU International Folk Dance Company, an ethnic fashion parade, cultural exhibits and a lecture by author Anne Marie Weiss-Armush. Tickets are available in advance from the Office of International Education, located on the second floor of Jones Hall, and at the door. For ticket information, call (940) 898-3338.

A former Fulbright scholar to Mexico, Weiss-Armush is fluent in Arabic and Spanish. While living in Saudi Arabia for 11 years, she produced the first of her four books, as well as several programs on Arab traditions for Saudi Arabian television. For five years she wrote stories on North Texas' ethnic communities for the religion section, food section and today section of the Dallas Morning News. Weiss-Armush has also served as a commentator on immigrant culture for local and national media.

Her speech will look at Sept. 11, 2001 as a defining moment in American history and whether or not the role of the United States in global society has changed.

Fare for the evening will be: cous cous salad, romaine Caesar salad, curried chicken, beef teriyaki, fettuccine Alfredo, garlic bread, vegetable eggrolls, chocolate cake and assorted cookies.

International festival sponsors are the Office of International Education, International Student Association, TWU International Dance Company and the International Week Committee.
