Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, founder and editor of MuslimGirl.com, will discuss her book, Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age, at a National Press Club Book Rap on Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 6:30 p.m., in the NPC’s Conference Rooms.
Set against the current political climate, where the president-elect has suggested banning Muslims from entering the United States, creating a Muslim registry database and identification cards for Muslims, Al-Khatahtbeh plans to discuss how Islamophobia after 9/11 impacted her as a child and how the blog she founded, MuslimGirl.com, turned into a cultural phenomenon, which led to columns in Forbes, Vogue Teen and an MTV Snapchat show.
This event will feature an author discussion, audience question-and-answer session, and book signing. Tickets are $5 for Press Club members and $10 for the public. Books can be purchased online at the same time as tickets or at the event. No outside books or memorabilia are permitted. Proceeds from this event benefit the non-profit affiliate of the Club, the National Press Club Journalism Institute, which offers innovative, practical training to journalists and communications professionals working in a rapidly-changing media environment.
