Romance, dating, sex and – Muslim women? In Love, InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women (Soft Skull Press), 25 writers sweep aside stereotypes to share their search for love and reveal what it means to be a Muslim woman in America today. The writers represent a broad spectrum of ethnicities, races and religious practice and speak openly for the first time about love, relationships, gender, identity and sexuality.
Come hear from the editors of this collection, Ayesha Mattu and Nura Maznavi, about their intentions and purpose of the book and the road to publication. Meet two of the contributors, Chinyere Obimba and Najva Sol, and listen as they read excerpts from their stories.
