Description: Join the Shrewsbury Public Library for the program, "Ask a Muslim Anything," presented by Exeter, NH resident Robert Azzi. Azzi finds that most people - even those critical of Islam and Muslims - when engaged in small scale or in one-one-one conversation, are willing to listen and engage with Muslims if that engagement occurs in what are perceived to be safe places: houses of worship, libraries, schools, civic organizations, etc.

Azzi speaks not as a scholar or academic but as a neighbor, fellow citizen and person of faith.
Azzi travels - these days virtually - throughout New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Maine at the invitation of local communities to speak about his life, what its like to be Muslim in America, how he came to convert to Islam, about the religion of Islam and its history  especially in America  and about the Middle East, terrorism, and associated political and social issues. Nothing, except disrespect, is off the table.

This program will be held in person at the library. Please register to attend here: https://tinyurl.com/yc3a3jdd
