LESLEY HAZLETON at Town Hall Seattle
Co-presented with the TOWN HALL CENTER FOR CIVIC LIFE. Having just finished a commendable stint as Town Hall's first Scholar in Residence, Lesley Hazleton, self-described "accidental theologist" with such books as Mary: A Flesh-and-Blood Biography of the Virgin Mother, Jezebel, and After the Prophet, is at Town Hall tonight with her newest, The First Muslim: The Story of Muhammad (Riverhead). "Hazleton sets her keen eye and her sculpted prose on one of the most fascinating and misunderstood figures in history ... This is a wonderful book."- Reza Aslan. "Masterful, accessible, and engaging ... An absolute delight (and indispensable) for believers and non-believers alike."- Hooman Majd. "The most readable, engaging study of Muhammad I have ever come across." - G. Willow Wilson. $5 tickets are available at the door starting at 6:30 p.m., or in advance via www.strangertickets.com. Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca). Preferred seating for Town Hall members.
