'Muslim Journeys' reading series being held at CCU

August 29, 2013

Coastal Carolina University is hosting a reading and discussion series titled “Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys” at Lackey Chapel on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 4:30 p.m. The program will explore F.E. Peters’ book, “The Children of Abraham: Judaism, Christianity, Islam,” with a presentation and a discussion led by Rabbi Deborah Slavitt, a CCU teaching associate of philosophy and religious studies. The event is free and open to the public.

The five-part series is scheduled to discuss a new book every two weeks at Lackey Chapel. The books can be found in Kimbel Library on the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys. A limited number of each individual title will be given to registered participants.

CCU has chosen a theme of “Pathways of Faith” for the reading series that is presented by CCU’s Kimbel Library and Bryan Information Commons and the Department of Philosophy and Religion. The series is in conjunction with “Bridging Cultures,” a grant program of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), to familiarize audiences with the people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world. Kimbel Library is one of 125 libraries and state humanities councils across the country selected to participate in the project.

The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf is a project of NEH, conducted in cooperation with the ALA Public Programs Office, with support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Arts.
