Book Event | ‘The Lover: A Sufi Mystery’ by Dr. Laury Silvers

A reading by Dr. Laury Silvers from her debut novel, ‘The Lover: A Sufi Mystery‘.  Introduced by Dr. Nevin Reda.

Dr. Laury Silvers is a Toronto-based Muslim academic and activist who writes historical mysteries set in the time and place of her scholarship, 10th century Baghdad.

The Lover’s first-rate storytelling and characters propel it to enormity….Upon the seeming simplicity of this narrative arc Silvers builds the rich inner world of her principle personas….The power in this diversity of images should not be underestimated in a mediasphere wherein Muslims are too often depicted as monolithic and flat.” -Adam Gaiser (“The Muslim World”, 2019)

Signed copies of the book will be on sale for $15 (cash or cheque).  E-books available here.
