Excerpt:

The Wyoming Humanities Council, together with the Albany County Public Library and the Laramie County Library System, announces a five-part reading and discussion series titled "Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys," starting in early 2014. The council is one of 125 organizations across the country selected to participate in this project, which focuses on the people, history and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

The titles in the reading series are "Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood" by Marjane Satrapi, "House of Stone" by Anthony Shadid, "Dreams of Trespass" by Fatima Mernissi, "Broken Verses" by Kamila Shamsie, and "In the Country of Men" by Hisham Matar. Deborah Amos, international correspondent for National Public Radio, developed the series, which features several memoirs.

Clara Keyt is the discussion leader in Cheyenne. Keyt holds a doctorate in public history from Arizona State University and teaches for the University of Wyoming and Colorado State University.
