General Event Information
Dates and Times:
February 12, 2014, 7:00PM-9:00PM
Reza Aslan addresses the topics of Islam, the Middle East, and Muslim Americans with authority, wit, and an infectious optimism. He speaks for a young generation of Muslims—socially conscious, politically active, and technologically savvy. A new generation of young people clamoring for their rights and freedoms, with a vision that represents their values, not the values of a ruling elite of previous generations. Author of "No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam," Aslan reveals the nature of these historic societal changes. He unravels the complexities of the new Middle East and shows us what the future holds for this oft-misunderstood part of the world. Aslan is President and CEO of Aslan Media Inc.
