Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys is a scholar-led reading and discussion program designed for libraries seeking to provide opportunities for informed discussion in their communities about the histories, faith, and cultures of Muslims around the world and within the United States.
Through the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf, NEH and ALA are providing a collection of twenty-five books, three documentary films, a one-year subscription to Oxford Islamic Studies Online, and a DVD of short films titled Islamic Art Spots developed and presented by national project scholar D. Fairchild Ruggles, to more than nine hundred libraries in all fifty states as well as the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.
