Clemens Library is offering a series of public Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys scholar-led book discussions based on the Bridging Cultures: Muslim Journeys Bookshelf's "Connected Histories" theme. We meet 5:00-6:30pm every other Thursday from February 13-April 10, 2014, in Clemens Library. Our programs feature local scholar Dr. Jeffrey Diamond, Assistant Professor of History at CSB/SJU. He will introduce each book and lead the discussion of the book. Participants have received free copies of the five books listed below, and are encouraged to read each book before the discussion about it.
Our discussion schedule is as follows:
- 2/13/2014: When Asia Was the World
- 2/27/2014: The House of Wisdom
- 3/13/2014: The Ornament of the World
- 3/27/2014: Leo Africanus
