A Life in Morocco

On Tuesday, October 15 (that’s tomorrow, for those of you keeping score), the library will host Chris Cryer, author of Tolstoy in Riyadh, as part of its Muslim Journeys program. She will be discussing the lives of women in the book Dreams of Trespass. This book, written by Fatima Mernissi, is an autobiography of the author’s life in a harem in 1940’s Morocco. It is a beautifully written book, and it tells of the tensions between the old ways and the new.

We hope you can join us! 5:30pm in the Reading Room of the Library, LRC 2nd floor.
