    Strategic intelligence analyst and author Avi Melamed will present “An Inside Look: At the War in Syria” on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. in the Kane Forum of Leahy Hall. The lecture, presented by the University’s Panuska College of Professional Studies, is free and open to the public.

    The lecture further explores the topic introduced to the University’s incoming class of 2023 as part of the Royal Reads Program, which this year selected “The Bread of Angels,” a memoir about Stephanie Saldaña’s journey into Syria under the Baathist regime, as the book that all incoming students would read then discuss further during the academic year.

    Melamed is a former Israeli intelligence official and senior official on Arab affairs. He is the author of “Inside the Middle East: Making Sense of the Most Dangerous and Complicated Region on Earth,” which offers a unique insight into the Arab world, challenges widely-accepted perceptions and provides a guide to make sense of the events unfolding in the region.

    For information about the lecture, phone 570-941-6305.
