Ask a Muslim Anything with Robert Azzi

September 30th, 2017 · No Comments · Books, City Library, Events, Main Branch, News, Newsletter, Teens, Trustees

Arab-American Muslim Robert Azzi is an Exeter based photojournalist and columnist
who spent several decades working in and writing about the Middle East. He put together the “Ask a Muslim Anything” program to increase awareness and reduce misunderstandings about Islam. This program is an opportunity for conversation about identity, conflict, interfaith relations, international
affairs, Islamophobia, or whatever comes up.

‘Ask a Muslim Anything’ is a program I’ve been developing with great success. I’ve found that most people, even those critical of Islam and Muslims , when engaged in small scale or in one-one-one conversation, are willing to listen and engage with Muslims if that engagement occurs in what are perceived to be safe places: houses of worship, libraries, schools, civic organizations, etc., and I speak to them not as a scholar or academic but as a neighbor, fellow citizen and person of faith.”

Join us on Thursday, October 12th at 6:30 PM in the library auditorium. For more information, contact Mary Gallant at 624-6550 ext. 3311.
