NYC Event: The World 9/11 Created

Voice of Witness, the non-profit arm of McSweeney’s Books, has put together their latest collection of oral histories in time to be included in our reflections on 9/11 and the world that day created. On Tuesday, September 13, Buddha-killer Scott Korb welcomes Alia Malek, editor of VoW’s Patriot Acts: Narratives of Post-9/11 Injustice, to the Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study.

Joining them in a panel discussion of the book will be several of the book’s contributors, including Adama Bah (“Young Woman Fears Deportation, and Mutilation,” New York Times, 10/26/06) and Noor Elashi, daughter of Ghassan Elashi, a founder of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, who was sentenced in 2008 to 65 years in prison for “bankrolling schools and social welfare programs the government says are controlled by Hamas.” Panelists from NYU include Imam Khalid Latif and Gallatin undergraduate Ebadur Rahman.

Why don’t you go, too?
