Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys: Broken Verses

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 to highlight Islam and the cultures, histories, and stories of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

At A.K. Smiley Public Library, we will be hosting the fourth book discussion of the Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys series, focusing on the novel Broken Verses by Kamila Shamsie. The discussion of Broken Verses will be on Saturday, January 25, 2014, 2-4 p.m.

All book-based discussions are led by Dr. Patrick Wing, Assistant Professor of History. Copies of all the Muslim Journeys books to be discussed are available for borrowing from Armacost Library and A.K. Smiley Public Library. Due to limited space, pre-registration for the book-based discussions is strongly encouraged, but not required. This can be done through the project website (link provided below, through the Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys Book Discussions tab), by contacting Melissa Cardenas-Dow at the Armacost Library, or registering in person at A.K. Smiley Public Library.

We will also be hosting several film screenings on campus. All events are free and open to the public.
