6 PM (Langston Room) – In conversation with Andy Shallal, renowned scholar Akbar Ahmed will discuss and sign his new title, “Journey into America: The Challenge of Islam”. The most comprehensive study ever done on the American Muslim community, “Journey into America” explores and documents how Muslims are fitting into U.S. society, seeking to place the Muslim experience in the U.S. within the larger context of American identity. In doing so, it is a major contribution to the study of American history and culture. For more info on the book, and to purchase: http://bbpbooks.teachingforchange.org/book/9780815703877
