Join Parnassus Book Club and moderator Kathy Schultenover in welcoming author Ayad Akhtar for a discussion and signing of his novel American Dervish. American Dervish is a brilliantly written, nuanced, and emotionally forceful look inside the interplay of religion and modern life. Ayad Akhtar was raised in the Midwest himself, and through Hayat Shah he shows readers vividly the powerful forces at work on young men and women growing up Muslim in America. This is an intimate, personal first novel that will stay with readers long after they turn the last page.
We gladly welcome all to join in this event.
