Muslim Book Event at Busboys & Poets

This seems rather timely right about now.

Busboys and Poets will welcome Prof. Salim Al-Hassani to sign and discuss 1001 Inventions: The Enduring Legacy of Muslim Civilization, the companion book to the exhibition 1001 Inventions, now open at the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C.

The exhibition is described as follows: “1001 Inventions provides insight into a significant time period in Muslim history that has been looked over by much of the world. A time where discoveries were made and inventions were created that have impacted how Western civilization and the rest of the world lives today. The book will cover seven aspects of life relatable to everyone, including home, school, hospital, market, town, world and universe.”
