THE NIGHT COUNTER’S MIDDLE EAST TOUR BEGINSOctober 20, 2009
Six weeks after finishing the initial U.S. tour, The Night Counter and I are going to do a little tour of the Middle East. Started out easy last night at the
American Women’s Network in Abu Dhabi, where, thanks to my friend Annette, many of the women had already read it and were fans. Next is Bahrain, where I don’t know anyone. I’ll wrap it up in mid-December in Abu Dhabi with New York University’s international conference on the Arabian Nights. Here’s a rundown:
