Fall 2013 Series
“Muslim Journeys: Points of View”
The drama of conflict, chaos, and war comes to Western readers in daily newspaper stories, but the news gives us scant details about how people live their lives in Islamabad, Fez, Cairo or Tehran. Through the titles in "Muslim Journeys, Points of View", readers will encounter individual experiences in Muslim-majority societies through memoirs and novels representing a diverse geography and some of the best contemporary storytelling.
