Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys

Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys, a scholar-led, five-part reading and discussion series, seeks to provide opportunities for informed conversation about the faith, history, and culture of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

The series has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the American Library Association. Frederick County Public Libraries is one of 125 libraries and state humanities councils across the country selected to participate in the project. 

As part of this program, the C. Burr Artz Public Library will host a series of five reading and discussion sessions on the theme of Literary Reflections, led by Dr. Donald Wright, Director of Middle Eastern Studies at Hood College.
