Carter Center's Day Chapel
TICKETED EVENT

With his hallmark insight into the forces at play in the Middle East and his acclaimed journalistic skill, Lawrence Wright's Thirteen Days in September: Carter, Begin and Sadat at Camp David takes us through each of the thirteen days of the Camp David conference, delving deeply into the issues and enmities between the two nations, explaining the relevant background to the conflict and to all the major participants at the conference, from the three heads of state to their mostly well-known seconds working furiously behind the scenes. What emerges is not what we've come to think of as an unprecedented yet "simple" peace. Ticketing information coming soon.

Kidliterate Book Club
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, September 23 at 7pm
Join us for a wide-ranging conversation in a new kind of book club. We'll be reading one book a month (children's or young adult fiction). Titles will be very carefully selected. We'll seek out books that push the boundaries of what kidlit is "supposed to do."

Preference will be give to stories that some might call "edgy" or "controversial." Books that offer exposure to the world our kids are growing up in, as well as imaginary landscapes.

These will be books that might scare other parents. Books with "language" and "mature content." They may be "upsetting" books. The kind of books that "give kids ideas."

We like ideas.

We believe that books are the very best place for kids to encounter scary things and foreign concepts. We believe that books can help prepare kids to engage with the world around them. We believe kids are smart and resilient, great at asking tough questions. We believe they should.

But we also just like reading kids' books.

So come if you like amazingly good books! Come if you'd like to be introduced to titles you might not otherwise read! Come if you think books should stir the pot. Come for a new an way to screen your child's summer reading! Come if you want to argue with us! September's book is The freedom maze by Delia Sherman

October: Me and Earl and the dying girl, Jesse Andrews November: River and the Rock, Kekla Magoon

This is a Charis Circle Whole Children, Strong Families Program. The suggested donation is $5.

A Community Discussion for the Muslim American Community and Allies with Dr. Abdullahi A. An-Naim author of "What is an American Muslim"
Charis Books and More, Thursday, September 25 at 7:30pm
Community activist Samia Abdullah and Charis invite all people from Metro Atlanta Muslim American communities and interested allies to join in a public reading and discussion led by Dr. Abdullahi A. An-Naim about his book: What Is an American Muslim?

An American citizen born and raised in the Sudan, an internationally recognized scholar of Islam, and a human rights activist, Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im brings a unique perspective to this crucial question. By demanding that Muslims assimilate, he argues, allies and critics alike assume that American Muslims are a monolithic bloc, a permanent minority set apart from that which is truly "American." An-Na'im wholeheartedly rejects this notion and urges Muslims to embrace their faith without fear.

Muslims, An-Na'im argues, must embrace the full range of rights and responsibilities that come with American citizenship, and participate fully in civic life, while at the same time asserting their right to define their faith for themselves. They must view themselves, simply, as American citizens who happen to be Muslims. What Is an American Muslim? is a bold and provocative take on the future of Islam in America.

Dr. An-Na'im is the Charles Howard Candler Professor of Law, School of Law, Emory University.

This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event. The Suggested Donation is $5, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
