House of Stone Book Discussion

Miami University Libraries will be hosting its third Muslim Journeys* Book Discussion on February 13th 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. Matthew Gordon, professor of History.

Our third book will be House of Stone by Anthony Shadid.  You can find out more about this book and the other books we will be reading in our discussion series here. Here's a book review for the book.  You might also be interested in a series of 10 videos of Anthony Shadid, as he completes the renovations on his ancestral home.  Finally you can read an obituary for Anthony Shadid here.

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.
