Krista Bremer, Lesley Hazleton

Why: My Accidental Jihad is about how Krista Bremer fell in love with, married, and had a child with a Muslim man. Rather than focusing on alienness, Bremer discusses how every marriage is a joining of two “others.” Most exciting of all, she’ll be joined by Stranger Genius Lesley Hazleton, whose most recent book, The First Muslim, is a smart, passionate, and agnostic biography of Muhammad. Hazleton has been researching religion for longer than Bremer’s adult life, and she’s a firecracker of an interlocutor, so get ready for a substantive conversation about Islam, tolerance, and America.
