House of Stone by Anthony Shadid
Description from Amazon:
In the summer of 2006, racing through Lebanon to report on the Israeli invasion, Anthony Shadid found himself in his family’s ancestral hometown of Marjayoun. There, he discovered his great-grandfather’s once magnificent estate in near ruins, devastated by war. One year later, Shadid returned to Marjayoun, not to chronicle the violence, but to rebuild in its wake.
So begins the story of a battle-scarred home and a journalist’s wounded spirit, and of how reconstructing the one came to fortify the other. In this bittersweet and resonant memoir, Shadid creates a mosaic of past and present, tracing the house’s renewal alongside the history of his family’s flight from Lebanon and resettlement in America around the turn of the twentieth century. In the process, he memorializes a lost world and provides profound insights into a shifting Middle East.

The AMC Annual Retirees' Luncheon was held on Wednesday, April 24 at the NYU Torch Club. The gathering was warm and festive, as usual. It was great to see familiar faces -- those who make the pilgrimage each year, and some making their debut as retirees. Regrets were heartfelt, as always, and many good wishes sent from afar by those who could not make it. Despite a postal fiasco, which resulted in a very late delivery of the invitations (after the date of the event!), we filled the Tap Room, with approximately 70 in attendance.
AMC Chair David Vogelsang presided over the event. Guests were greeted and gifted (a snazzy summer cooler was the take-away this year), and after schmoozing a little, sat down to a delicious buffet lunch. During his words of welcome and cheer, David took a moment to toast the 40th anniversary of the AMC and the 25th year of these luncheons. We were fortunate to have George Pozderec, who was AMC President when the very first Retirees Luncheon was held, present to say a few words as well.
Throughout the luncheon, guests were treated to classics from The American Songbook, performed by the Daan Kleijn Trio. Dan Kleijn (guitar), Jeff Dingler (double bass) and Ricky Alexander (tenor saxophone) are all NYU graduate students in jazz performance, and they did a lovely job of entertaining the group. The formalities ended with the annual raffle drawing. The lucky winners this year were Joe Diaz, who received a gift certificate for lunch at the Torch Club, and Mary Wade, who received a lunch cruise with World Yacht!
Thanks to everyone who attended, and best wishes to those who could not make it. We hope that the mailing disaster is something that will never happen again, and we look forward to seeing everyone next year!
