Subject: [Libs-Or] One book/ one conference 

In April at the OLA conference we will be discussing the book Terrorist's Son: A Story of Choice by Zak Ebrahim. I was fortunate enough to attend the ALEX awards program at the ALA conference last summer. Mr. Ebrahim spoke movingly about growing up a poor Muslim with a single mother,whose family had to move repeatedly because of who his father was. He was taught to hate, yet became a peace activist. His book is a quick read with his profoundly affecting story. 

The book began as a TED talk and became the first book of the new imprint of Simon and Schuster. 

Here is his TED talk Talk. 

Here's the Terry Gross Interview. 

Here's the book : Inline image 1
