The Literary Café is held four times a year to promote creative writing among all members of the IC community. The final “May Gala” took place in the LMC.
The young stars of the event were students Khalil Chahine, Tony Asfour, Karim Hamadeh, Dalia Barazi, Tarek Bou Nassif, Rewa Mneimneh, Lara Chehabeddine, Adam Jammal, Feras Jarmakhani, Serene Hassouna, and Nadine Mokh. Their writing touched on love, family, justice, and personal struggle.
Mrs. Mourani read a moving short story based on her recollections of IC during the Civil War Years. Mr. Paul Lemoyne charmed the audience with the beauty of his French verses.
Students, parents, and teachers shared their impressions. Mrs. Randa Soubaih, Mrs. Rola Ayache, Mr. Bruce Bartlett, and Mr. Jared Rock expressed their appreciation for the fine creative work of their students.
SVP Mourani concluded by thanking Mrs. Silvana Bartlett for her enthusiasm and organization, and commended the students on the quality of their work and their commitment to writing.
