Movie Night at the Library--August 29, 2013

Bridging Cultures Bookshelf logo
 Join State Library Services for the presentation of Koran by Heart.  This documentary follows three 10-year-old children who leave their native countries to participate in the International Holy Koran Competition, the world's oldest and most prestigious Koran reciting contest, in Cairo.  Up against much older students, the youngsters have committed the 600 pages of the Koran to memory and will put their skills to the test before the world's Muslim community.  In the midst of the competitions, the young competitors face uncertain futures at home as they are caught between fundamentalist and moderate versions of Islam.
This event is free and open to the public.
