It was a lovely evening of comradery and friendship as the hall at the AUB museum was filled to its capacity with joyous academics, friends and members who came to celebrate, on Wednesday February 19, 2020, the inauguration of “Nuit de Pleine Lune sur Amurru: Mélanges offerts à Leila Badre"; a commemoration of Dr. Badre's long journey and contributions to the field of Archeology and Museology.
