Last week, I met with Steve Scholl, one of the publishers of I Speak for Myself: American Women on Being Muslim. He gave me my first copy of the book: it felt wonderful to hold it in my hands, smell the paper, and see all the work come together into a perfectly binded book!
Since the book will be in stores next week, I looked it over carefully and was delighted to see that my picture was included on the back cover, along with several other of the contributors. I’m tickled to think that my face will be in bookstores next week!
Steve mentioned that we’d gotten a review in Publisher’s Weekly, and today a colleague mentioned that ISFM was on the front page of Deepak Chopra’s website! The historian in me had to take a screenshot for the record:
ISFM will be in bookstores next week, but you can order it from the publisher now at a pretty sweet discount. Make sure to check it out!
