Nomani in Seattle

Asra Nomani is a force of nature. For the past few months, she’s been at the forefront of a movement that seeks to desegregate American mosques, promote women’s right to lead prayers, and generally question the status quo. I’d been hoping that she might visit the Northwest on her book tour for Standing Alone in Mecca, but unfortunately no appearances in Portland are scheduled. The closest there is is a reading in Seattle, at the Elliott Bay Book Company, tonight at 7:30 pm. If you go, I’d love to hear how it went!
