Human Library - Muslim Woman and Imam books
This Saturday (January 25), the Human Library returns to Ottawa between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Last year, Michelle Walrond signed out the Imam book and she hasn't put him down since.
Here's Mohamad Jebara's book jacket:
As a boy, Mohamad Jebara committed the entire Qur'an and many Classical manuscripts to memory. Today he is Ottawa's only Canadian-raised Imam and the author of dozens of books. Mohamad is the founder and headmaster of Cordova Academy and Andalusia College. In December 2012, he was ordained the official representative of the National Capital Region for the Canadian Council of Imams.
This year, Michele Walrond is also a Human Library book. Here's her book jacket:
Michelle was raised in an era of social activism in Philadelphia. She embraced Islam in the late 1960s. Now this convert and great-grandmother leads poverty-elimination campaigns. She's also the founder of the National Islamic Sisters' Association of Canada.
You can sign-out the Imam and Muslim Woman books for a one-on-one conversation at the Main branch of the Ottawa Public Library. Alan Neal is on hold for you as well. Alan spoke with Michelle and Mohamad about their Human Library experiences.
