Carnegie Mellon Lecture Series
Presents  "A Land Twice Promised," Jan. 27    

PITTSBURGH—Renowned Israeli storyteller Noa Baum will perform "A Land Twice Promised" as part of the Carnegie Mellon University Lecture Series at 8 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 27, in the university's Kresge Theatre. This event is free and open to the public.    

Born and raised in Jerusalem and trained in theater and education, Baum is an acclaimed performance artist, educator and workshop facilitator who brings stories to life with her animated and energetic style. Critics say her storytelling builds a bridge of understanding and compassion between East and West, American and Israeli, Arab and Jew, and past and present.

The University Lecture Series is a partnership between the Office of the Vice Provost for Education and the Division of Student Affairs. This presentation is co-sponsored by the Middle East Peace Forum, which promotes dialogue on paths to peace by presenting speakers, films and open forums in the Pittsburgh area.
