The American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities present Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys, a scholar-led reading and discussion program for public audiences.
The program is designed for libraries seeking to provide opportunities for informed discussion in their communities about the histories, faith, and cultures of Muslims around the world and within the United States.
Similar discussions will take place at libraries and other venues through the auspices of selected state and territorial humanities councils, whose mission it is to make high quality humanities programs available to residents throughout their state or territory.
Up to one hundred twenty-five grants will be awarded to libraries and state and territorial humanities councils around the country to host programs on one of the five Muslim Journeys themes. (The five themes are listed below). Participating libraries will plan a five-part series of reading and discussion programs, which will take place every two to four weeks, depending on local library preferences. The library is responsible for recruiting a scholar to lead each discussion and for promoting the programs to the widest possible public audience.
