NEH Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys

January 2014

You are invited to join a book club, Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys!
Read more about the project and the books. Sign-up for the reading group or call 260/481-5404 or e-mail Susan Anderson at the IPFW Helmke Library (anderssm@ipfw.edu).

The Muslim Journeys initiative familiarizes US public audiences with the people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world. Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys, 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. Local sponsorship is by the IPFW Walter E. Helmke Library and the Allen County Public Library.

The American Stories reading theme includes five books; each book discussion session is facilitated by an expert speaker, who prefaces the discussion with a brief background lecture.

All book club meetings will be held at the Walter E. Helmke Library on the IPFW campus and are free and open to the public. In 2014, we will read and discuss:
