All-American Muslim Girl Book Discussion  (Public Programs)

Muslim Journeys series: Discussion of Nadine Jolie Courtney's All-American Muslim Girl, led by Leila Tarakji (MSU)
Thu. Oct. 28, 7pm HYBRID EVENT

Allie Abraham has it all going for her-she's a straight-A student, with good friends and a close-knit family, and she's dating cute, popular, and sweet Wells Henderson. One problem: Wells's father is Jack Henderson, America's most famous conservative shock jock...and Allie hasn't told Wells that her family is Muslim. It's not like Allie's religion is a secret, exactly. It's just that her parents don't practice and raised her to keep her Islamic heritage to herself. But as Allie witnesses ever-growing Islamophobia in her small town and across the nation, she begins to embrace her faith-studying it, practicing it, and facing hatred and misunderstanding for it. Who is Allie, if she sheds the fašade of the "perfect" all-American girl? What does it mean to be a "Good Muslim?" And can a Muslim girl in America ever truly fit in?


ALL-AMERICAN MUSLIM GIRL is a relevant, relatable story of being caught between two worlds, and the struggles and hard-won joys of finding your place.
