Haroon Moghul will be in conversation with Dina Kesbeh, founder of MuslimVox.

A young Muslim leader's memoir of his struggles to forge an American Muslim identity. 

"Between Homer Simpson and Muhammad Iqbal, Rumi and Kobe Bryant, Haroon Moghul's profound, honest, entertaining, and hilarious memoir emerges as a unique and important voice for our current times; it's both authentically American and authentically Muslim, navigating the perilous fault lines of each dysfunctional identity while gracefully juggling the hot-potato topics of race, religion, nerd pop culture, and awkward first dates. The title, HOW TO BE A MUSLIM, doesn't do this revealing and impressive memoir justice. It should simply be called ‘How to Be a Human.’ By showing us his warts, pain, flaws, insecurities, demons, and hypocrisies, Moghul ultimately reveals the joy, wonder, and purpose of living and being in the messy, conflicted playground that is modern life.” —Wajahat Ali, author of THE DOMESTIC CRUSADERS

“How to Be a Muslim is at once a poignant spiritual memoir, a gripping tale of love and survival, and a pop-culture-infused retelling of an ancient tradition. Packed with wit, wisdom, and wry intelligence, Haroon Moghul’s story should be read by anyone who wants to understand the complexity and reality of religion in America today.” —Peter Manseau, author of ONE NATION, UNDER GODS
