Islam and Authors Series - Sumbul Ali-Karamali Author of "Growing Up Muslim: Understanding the Beliefs and Practices of Islam"
Please join us for an onstage conversation with author Sumbula Ali-Karamali about her new book "Growing Up Muslim: Understanding the Beliefs and Practices of Islam", followed by audience Q&A session and book signing.

About the Author

Sumbul Ali-Karamali grew up in Southern California, answering questions about Islam. She holds a B.A. from Stanford University, a J.D from the University of California at Davis, and a graduate degree in Islamic law from the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies. She has served as a teaching assistant in Islamic Law at SOAS and a research associate at the Centre of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law in London. Her book, "The Muslim Next Door: the Qur'an, the Media, and that Veil Thing," is an academically reliable introduction to what Muslims believe and practice, but one written in the personal, anecdotal, everyday context of growing up Muslim in America. Her second book, "Growing Up Muslim; Understanding the Beliefs and Practices of Islam," is a nonfiction chapter book on Islam for ages 10 and up

About the Book

Author Sumbul Ali-Karamali offers her personal account, discussing the many and varied questions she fielded from curious friends and schoolmates while growing up in Southern Californiafrom diet, to dress, to prayer and holidays and everything in between. She also provides an academically reliable introduction to Islam, addressing its inception, development and current demographics.

Through this engaging work, readers will gain a better understanding of the everyday aspects of Muslim American life, to dispel many of the misconceptions that still remain and open a dialogue for tolerance and acceptance.

The book will be available for purchase and signing.
