Irshad Manji at McNally Robinson Booksellers Tonight

by Events Winnipeg - Wednesday, Mar 21, 2012 at 3:22pm

Tonight, Wednesday March 21, we are thrilled to welcome Irshad Manji here at our store at 7:00 pm for a very special conversation with Marilou McPhedran, followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Irshad is in Winnipeg to promote the paperback publication of her latest book, Allah, Liberty and Love, and this should prove to be a very interesting evening indeed.

Irshad Manji teaches moral courage at New York University's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. A Globe and Mail columnist, she is also a scholar with the European Foundation for Democracy. Her #1 Canadian bestseller, The Trouble with Islam Today: A Wake-Up Call for Honesty and Change, earned international recognition and inspired Manji's Emmy-nominated PBS film, Faith Without Fear. The New York Times has called her "Osama Bin Laden's worst nightmare" while the Jakarta Post in Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country, has identified Irshad Manji as one of three women creating positive change in contemporary Islam.

Irshad is joined in conversation this evening by Prof. Marilou McPhedran, head of The University of Winnipeg Global College and an international human rights lawyer.

Seating is limited, so please arrive early if you want to be assured of a seat.
