Lorenzo Tugnoli and I presented The Little Book of Kabul at Twelve Gates Arts as part of their 12G Salon. It was a beautiful evening of great intellectual exchange, the environment was very welcoming, and the audience actively participated with stimulating and challenging questions. It was a great food for thought.”
— Francesca Recchia, Author of The Little Book of Kabul, Picnic in a Minefield, and Devices for Political Action

The 12G Salon series brings to Philadelphia a stimulating, enriching selection of internationally distinguished visual, literary, and performing artists. The gallery setting blends an inviting, intimate setting with a global awareness and sensitivity.
— Sherry Babbitt, The William T. Ranney Director of Publishing, Philadelphia Museum of Art
