A Trip through 'Muslim Journeys' at the Fairfield Public Library
Published 6:35 pm, Thursday, October 24, 2013
Take an intellectual sojourn through varied "Muslim Journeys" with history teacher and Fairfield resident Brian Kelahan on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
Kelahan will speak on many Muslim pilgrimages including the famous Hajj to Mecca. Find out why Muslim individuals and groups have chosen to migrate, explore and travel, and how these expeditions connect to Islamic history and culture.
This event is part of the library's Muslim Journeys program, made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities Bridging Cultures initiative. Other Muslim Journeys programs this fall include an author talk and luncheon with Mahru Ghashghaei and Susan Snyder featuring their book "Nine Rubies" on Nov. 14, and Stories from the Muslim World, a family program with traditional stories and folktales on Nov. 17.
