Books and Company: Reading and Signing

MELODY MOEZZI will discuss her book, War on Error: Real Stories of American Muslims. She brings together the stories of twelve young people, all vastly different but all American, and all Muslim. Their approaches to religion couldn’t be more diverse; from a rapper of Korean and Egyptian descent to a bisexual Sudanese American to a converted white woman from Colorado living in Cairo and wearing the hijab. They express shock that, in a post 9/11 world, they have seen their religion come to be represented, in the minds of many Americans, by terrorism. Melody’s fresh new voice, combined with the perceptions and experiences of her fellow American Muslims, makes for an illuminating read.
