    Linda Pilz Napoletano MPhil '12 and social activist Rais Bhuiyan invite you to join them at a public reading of Napoletano's play "An Eye for an Eye." This new work follows the life of Bhuiyan, a Bangladeshi native living in Texas, who was targeted in the wake of the 9/11 attacks by a white supremacist because of his religious and cultural background. Shot and left for dead, Bhuiyan survived and went on to fight to save his attacker from Death Row in Texas. While Mark Stroman was ultimately executed, Bhuiyan continues to spread the message of forgiveness and peace through his organization, World Without Hate. Roles will be read by current students, alumni and actors from Middletown's Vintage Players and the community. The reading of the play will be followed by a brief Q&A with Bhuiyan, and members of Napoletano's MPhil advisory committee, Professors Indira Karamcheti and Peter Gottschalk.
