Khalil Gibran

Gibran Khalil Gibran (born 1883-01-06 in Bsharri[?], Lebanon, died 1931-04-10 in New York City) was a Lebanese poet and artist. He emigrated to Boston, USA in 1895 with his mother, sisters and half-brother. The spelling "Kahlil Gibran" is the result of an error when he first entered school in Boston. He studied art in Boston and French and Arabic in Lebanon.
