Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys at Booth Library this Spring Semester


Booth Library will present Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys, a reading and discussion series, during the spring semester. Booth Library is one of 125 libraries and state humanities councils across the country selected to participate in the project, which seeks to familiarize public audiences in the United States with the people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

Professor Brian Mann of the History Department will be involved with many of the events which include but are not limited to a five part scholar-led book discussion series, film screenings and discussions, a research panel with History undergraduate and graduate students, an interfaith panel, and a panel discussion on veiling.

Those who are interested in participating in the book discussion series are encouraged to register by emailing Kirstin Duffin, project director, at kduffin@eiu.edu or click here to visit the library webpage. Patrons may participate in one or more of the book discussions. A limited number of complimentary books will be available to participants. Those who register will be given priority to receive a free copy of the book(s) to be discussed, along with other program materials. A full schedule of events can be found here.
