The World Affairs Council of New Orleans (WACNO) and locally owned Octavia Books are excited to invite you to a free discussion with noted author, Imran Ahmad.

Ahmad’s memoir, Unimagined, about growing up Muslim in the West, has received much acclaim, including being listed as one of the best books of the year by The Independent and one the year’s best picks by The Guardian.

Unimagined has just been published in the United States as The Perfect Gentleman, and Ahmad is currently on tour to discuss his thought-provoking book. In addition to being a gifted writer, Ahmad has also received acclaim for his public speaking skills.

WACNO offers educational programming, such as this talk by Ahmad, to raise the community’s awareness of global issues and to further international understanding; many of these programs are free and open to the public.

To preorder A Perfect Gentleman, please visit Octavia Books or see their website, http://www.octaviabooks.com. For more information on this program, contact Flora Williams at 504.280.5591 or director@wacno.org.
