The American Oriental Society will be holding its 226th annual meeting this coming weekend, March 18-21, at the Omni Parker House Hotel in Boston, where LAL will be displaying and selling books, including our most recent English-only editions with stunningly redesigned covers of two popular translations in the series: The Principles of Sufism and The Epistle of Forgiveness, both just out this month.
Additionally, a majority of the LAL Editorial Board will be speaking on the morning of Saturday, March 19, at 9-10:30AM in the Hutchinson-Lowell Room, in a special presentation titled: “A Corpus or a Canon? The Priorities and Principles of the Library of Arabic Literature.” Check out the full program here for more details. If you are attending AOS this weekend or in the general area, please do drop by! We hope to see you there.
