Exclusive Event for Ages 21 to Thirty-Something
REC Room | 100 Jackson Street
With a restless curiosity to “learn about the world 9/11 made us fear,” multimedia backpack journalist and travel writer Adam Valen Levinson sets out to explore predominantly Muslim lands in his book, The Abu Dhabi Bar Mitzvah.
From a safe base in Abu Dhabi, he takes risky adventures such as eating lunch in the Taliban territory of Afghanistan, and cliff-diving in Oman. As he crosses borders, Valen Levinson expresses with humor and humanity that common ground among all people can be found anywhere.
