The World Affairs Council of Harrisburg and Estamos Unidos de Pennsylvania present: “Our Community, Our Leaders” forum featuring Great Female Author keynote Diana Untermeyer, author of “Qatar: Sand, Sea, Sky.”
These organizations are collaborating to sponsor a fundraising event to raise money for scholarships for deserving and needy students in our region.
Community leaders throughout Central Pennsylvania will also be honored at the event.
Mrs. Untermeyer lived in Doha, the bustling capital of Qatar, from 2004-2007 while her husband Chase served as U.S. ambassador. Qatar: Sand, Sea, and Sky gives an overview of Qatar’s rich culture and history and documents its journey into modernity. Though small in size, Qatar’s strategic location and natural gas wealth make it a rising economic and political power. Breathtakingly illustrated by award-winning photographer Henry Dallal, Mrs. Untermeyer’s personal narrative provides a unique perspective of this moderate Muslim country and the way it attempts to become modern and engaged with the world without losing its heritage.
Diana Untermeyer, author of Qatar: Sand, Sea, and Sky will be WAC Harrisburg’s future guest as part of the Great Female Author Series.
Continue the conversation Friday morning! The World Affairs Council of Harrisburg and the Pathways Institute for Lifelong Learning sponsor an international breakfast with Diana Untermeyer, wife of Chase Untermeyer, former U.S. Ambassador to Qatar.
