Love, InshAllah: A Night of Storytelling took place at the Central Library in downtown Madison on September 21st, 2018.
Often when we engage with the Muslim community in Madison, and even across the nation, the topic of discussion tend to be solemn and serious (unfortunately with the climate).
The Library Takeover team invited members of the public to join in a night of storytelling with young, Muslim American couples who shared their personal love stories.
Love is a universal phenomena but everyone has their own journey. The storytellers gave folks a glimpse into their own love stories, showcasing the diversity found within the Muslim community that is often painted as a monolith community.
The night featured guest speaker Nura Maznavi, the author and editor of Love, InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslims.
