Seattle NGO Recommends EH for its Global Classroom

In its Global Classroom two part lecture series Turkish Culture and Society in March and April this year, the World Affairs Council of Seattle listed Expat Harem in its selected Turkish literature resources for teachers. The event was part of a professional development training to inform educators about world regions, cultures, and issues; provide access to people from the regions being discussed; and disseminate up-to-date curriculum that supports bringing these ideas into the classroom.

We were honored to share this list with Turkey's famed poet
Nazim Hikmet, celebrated novelist Elif Shafak, award-winning author Louis de Bernieres and Nobel Laureate Orhan Pamuk. We look forward to Expat Harem becoming part of (even more) school curricula.

The non-profit, non-partisan
World Affairs Council is the leading foreign affairs forum in the Pacific Northwest. Members of the Council include schools, public institutions, businesses, and individuals, who want first hand information on global issues and direct participation in international exchange. Winner of the 2000 KCTS Golden Apple Award, the Global Classroom program reaches thousands of students through speaker programs and resources provided to Washington teachers.
