APS Member Fedwa Malti-Douglas's new memoir Speaking in Tongues is now available from the American Philosophical Society Press. Raised in a Lebanese mountain village, Fedwa Malti-Douglas came to America at the age of 13. This book tells the story of a family torn apart by divorce, death, and exile, and reunited by an inherited form of muscular dystrophy. It has been praised as “a memoir of unpitying clarity,” “deeply moving and arresting,” which “crosses landscapes of sadness, of happiness, of pain and peace, of alienation and acceptance, toward a healing enlargement of the soul.” Malti-Douglas is the Martha C. Kraft Professor of Humanities emeritus at Indiana University.
