Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys is a scholar-led reading and discussion program designed to foster opportunities for informed community conversations about the histories, faith, and cultures of Muslims around the world and within the United States. Available only to sites that have been selected to receive the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf, Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys offers up to $4,500 in grant funding to support more in-depth exploration of select titles included in the Bookshelf collection.

In May 2013, NEH and ALA selected 125 libraries and humanities councils to participate in the project. Each participating site will focus on one of five Muslim Journeys themes, hosting a five-part, scholar-led reading and discussion series exploring the theme and related books.
