Is the end near?

Next Wednesday at 5:30pm, we will be discussing the sixth book in our six-book Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys series. The book is Dreams of Trespass, which tells of a woman who grew up in a harem in 1940’s Morocco.

Is this the end of Muslim Journeys? No, Faithful Reader! In April, we will be viewing the documentary New Muslim Cool, which is all about a young man who spreads the word of Islam through rap, and the troubles he runs into. Quite an amazing story. We hope you will join us for this closing event!

As always, snacks and beverages will be served. If you have any questions, feel free to call the library at 805-289-6382.
