PRC Book Group - July 11, 2018
For her whole life, Souad Mekhennet, a reporter for The Washington Post who was born and educated in Germany, has had to balance the two sides of her upbringing – Muslim and Western. In this compelling and evocative memoir, we accompany Mekhennet as she journeys behind the lines of jihad, starting in the German neighborhoods where the 9/11 plotters were radicalized and the Iraqi neighborhoods where Sunnis and Shia turned against one another, and culminating on the Turkish/Syrian border region where ISIS is a daily presence.
The PRC Book Group, "One Book, One People", at the People's Resource Center brings volunteers, staff, and clients together to discuss some of the best books written about the various countries and cultures of the people we serve, and to get to know one another better. We even get to taste some of the great foods from around the world!!
2nd Wednesdays of the month at lunch (12 - 1:30) in the Megan Bradshaw Learning Center, 201 S. Naperville Road, Wheaton (on the second floor of our building).
Borrow or buy your own book. Bring your own lunch. Rice and beans will be served.
