Islam in America: The Next 10 Years

August 29, 2011

Join Irshad Manji, director of the Moral Courage Project at NYU Wagner, and John Avlon, senior columnist for The Daily Beast/Newsweek, as they examine how a new generation, both Muslim and non-Muslim, can re-shape post-9/11 America.

The discussion begins at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, headquartered on the 2nd floor of The Puck Building, 295 Lafayette Street (at the corner of Houston Street.) in lower Manhattan.

In her new book, Allah, Liberty and Love, the best-selling author Irshad Manji paves a path to reconciling faith and freedom — and she does so by showing us all how to develop "moral courage," the willingness to speak up when everyone else wants to shut you up. John Avlon, a leading voice of young independents, is a CNN contributor. In his book Wingnuts, John Avlon illustrates how "the lunatic fringe" is hijacking America.

The event will be followed by a book signing and reception.
