Muslim Journey’s Pathways of Fatih
The Matteson Public Library is one of 125 sites nationwide, that has won the 2013 National Endowment for the Humanities Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys grant. This grant written by Colleen Vander Hye, is for the library to organize a series of programming around the theme “Pathways of Faith”. This theme will engage open dialogue about religious pathways that trace their roots to Abraham.
The series is designed to offer participants an opportunity to learn about people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world, through scholar-led discussions at the library. Matteson’s Dr. Abdul Basit will be leading our series. A former Fulbright Scholar Dr. Basit has published extensively and has a longstanding interest in monotheistic religions.
Programs will take place between Sept 2013 and August 2014. Check our website as further details become available. Go here to read more about the upcoming Pathways of Faith books hat will be discussed in our upcoming programs.
