The Malibu Library Speaker Series presents author Mohammed AL Samawi on Wednesday, February 26, at 7 pm at Malibu Library. RSVPs are required.

AL Samawi is an interfaith activist, a refugee from Yemen, the author of The Fox Hunt: A Refugee’s Memoir of Coming to America (William Morrow), and a finalist for the National Jewish Book Awards. He is committed to the exchange of core values that define our religious traditions and hopes to advance this work through his interfaith organization “Abrahamic House” to build sustainable interfaith learning and action across Muslim, Jewish, and Christian communities in order to foster an environment of learning, respect, and social change.

Previously AL Samawi worked for several NGOs, including Oxfam and World Relief; he also worked as a freelance researcher for Boehncke Information Technology GmbH for more than two years. In those capacities, he authored more than 30 studies and reports about Yemen and reported extensively on Sudan, including Darfur.

Books will be for sale at the event and can be signed during the reception that follows.

RSVPs are required. RSVP online or call Malibu Library at 310.456.6438. This event will take place at Malibu Library.
