Tuesday, November 12th at 6:30 pm - Publication Party! Nadine Jolie Courtney discusses and signs "All-American Muslim Girl"
Join us on Tuesday, November 12th at 6:30 pm and celebrate with Nadine Jolie Courtney the release of her debut novel, All-American Muslim Girl!
This will be her Publication Party and all are welcome to attend. Please note that this event will take place in the lower outdoor courtyard adjacent to our store.
All-American Muslim Girl is a relevant, relatable story of being caught between two worlds, and the struggles and hard-won joys of finding your place.
Allie Abraham has it all going for her—she’s a straight-A student, with good friends and a close-knit family, and she’s dating popular, sweet Wells Henderson. One problem: Wells’s father is Jack Henderson, America’s most famous conservative shock jock, and Allie hasn’t told Wells that her family is Muslim. It’s not like Allie’s religion is a secret. It’s just that her parents don’t practice, and raised her to keep it to herself.
But as Allie witnesses Islamophobia in her small town and across the nation, she decides to embrace her faith—study, practice it, and even face misunderstanding for it. Who is Allie, if she sheds the façade of the “perfect” all-American girl?
