I was thrilled to have been selected as a contributing author in Salaam, Love: American Muslim Men on Love, Sex, and Intimacy (Beacon Press 2014, Amazon link), edited by Ayesha Mattu and Nura Maznavi. It was a project that truly changed my life. My story “Echoes” is a memoir that covered five seemingly unconnected moments in my life. However, when read as a whole, the reader discovers that life’s little moments are greater than they seem. (Read more about Salaam, Love and Love Inshallah: here)
Here is a recording from the Salaam, Love reading at the Harvard Book Store.
I was also given the opportunity to produce the book trailer for Salaam, Love. Check it out on Vimeo and let me know what you think.
