Afghanistan Events in Baltimore This Weekend (July 28/29)

Dear Friends,

Below is a copy of information from a flyer about events in Baltimore relating to Afghanistan. I will be participating at two events on Sunday July 29th (please see below for details), where I will be showing a new multimedia piece about women in Kandahar. In addition, 20 photographs of mine from Kabul and Kandahar will be on exhibit at Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles Street @ Lanvale in Baltimore on Saturday July 28th and Sunday July 29th. These are fund raising/awareness raising events to benefit Afghans for Civil Society (www.afghansforcivilsociety.org) and other projects on Afghanistan.

Kindly pass this on to anyone who might be interested.

All the best,

Paula Lerner
