The Love Tour heads to Detroit!Posted: July 2, 2012
The 2nd phase of our Love Tour has begun! With editor Nura’s recent move to Chicago, we’re kicking off a series of book events in the Midwest.
Our first stop — The Motor City, Detroit, Michigan. We were invited by Wayne State graduate student Sumaya Haji-Jama who, along with fellow organizer Fadumo Abdi, put together a fabulous reading at Seva Detroit, a local, delicious vegetarian restaurant.
We were thrilled to be joined by a such an energetic and engaged audience that included TLC’s All-American Muslim star Suehaila Amen, writer Zarinah El-Amin Naeem, and Nura’s new grandmother-in-law and mother-in-law!
More pictures of the event are available here. To organize a reading in your area, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Up next on the Midwest Love Tour (after Ramadan): St. Louis!
