Broken Verses Book Discussion

Miami University Libraries will be hosting its fourth Muslim Journeys* Book Discussion on March 6th from 4:00 to 5:00 in King 320. There will be a short presentation from a scholar, a discussion of the book, and light refreshments. Our scholar for this book will be Dr. Fauzia Ahmed, Sociology and Women's & Gender Studies.

Our fourth book will be Broken Verses by Kamila Shamsie.  You can find out more about this book and the other books we will be reading in our discussion series here.  Here is a review you might useful. These resources will also be useful: an interview, a map, and a timeline. You might also find this recent online discussion Kamila Shamsie had with the author Pankaj Mishra interesting.

We encourage you to sign up for the book discussions so that you can receive free copies of the selected books. You can read more about our Muslim Journeys programming on the website.

If you are interested in even more books to read, check out some of the books from our bookshelf: Bridging Cultures: Literary Reflections, Bridging Cultures: American Stories, and Bridging Cultures: Connected Histories.

*Our Muslim Journeys programming is sponsored by the American Library Association, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Miami University Humanities Center.  Additional support provided by the Miami University Center for American and World Cultures and the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati.
