Plan to engage in a lively discussion at Paul V. Galvin Library in celebration of both Women’s History Month and the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf. Dreams of Trespass: Tales of a Harem Girlhood by Fatima Mernissi and The Butterfly Mosque: A Young American Woman’s Journey to Love and Islam by G. Willow Wilson are the books that will be featured. One reflects the life of a girl born in Morocco in the 1940s, while the other is a recent account of a young woman’s conversion and travels.
Read one, read both! IIT faculty, students and staff are invited to attend this event, which will be held on Thursday, March 28 at 7:00 pm. All readers and comments are welcome. Use your I-Share or MyILL library account to secure a copy of the books or stop by Galvin Library where limited copies are available at the circulation desk. Light refreshments will be served.

This event reflects the values expressed in IIT’s Diversity Statement and is intended to promote diversity at IIT.
