Irshad Manji -- In Conversation/Book SigningWednesday Mar 21 2012 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium
In support of Allah, Liberty and Love: The Courage to Reconcile Faith and Freedom (Random House of Canada).
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.
