Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys: Maria Khani, guest speaker

Armacost Library, Campus Diversity & Inclusion, Redlands Peace Academy, and A.K. Smiley Public Library have received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association to host events that highlight Islam and the cultures, histories, and stories of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

Maria Khani, chair of the Women's Committee of the Islamic Institute of Orange County in Anaheim, CA will come to the University of Redlands as a guest speaker. She will talk about the basics of Islamic religious practices and how these are different from cultural practices prevalent among Muslim-majority societies. A facilitated question-and-answer session will follow Maria's presentation. This event will be held on Thursday, November 7, 2013 at Gregory Hall, Room 161, from 4 to 5 p.m.

Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journies, a reading and discussion series, has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the American Library Association.
