Milton Public Library to offer program called “Ask A Muslim Anything”
Program to be held on Tuesday, June 25
There will be a program called “Ask A Muslim Anything” with speaker Robert Azzi on Tuesday, June 25 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. This event with Mr. Azzi will be an open and honest look at his life, what’s it’s like to be a Muslim in America, how he came to convert to Islam, about the religion of Islam and its history – especially in America – and about the Middle East, terrorism and associated political and social issues.
Robert says that he finds that most people, even those critical of Islam and Muslims, when engaged in small scale or one-on-one conversation, are willing to listen and engage with Muslims in a positive way. His hope in giving this talk is that most people will eventually come to understand that we’ve all been made diverse peoples so that we will come to know each other – and that to know each other we must reach out and talk to each other.
Mr. Azzi is a photojournalist, columnist and public speaker who lives in Exeter, NH, and he has been speaking all over New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Maine at the invitation of local communities. He is an Arab/American Muslim, and he writes on issues of identity, conflict and Islam. Please join us for an enlightening conversation on June 25th.
