Library Speaker Series

The Malibu Library Speaker Series presents author Mohammed AL Samawi on Wednesday, February 26, 7:00 PM at the Malibu Library. Free with RSVPs. Books will be available for sale at the event and there will be a book signing with the author during the reception.

AL Samawi is an interfaith activist, a refugee from Yemen, the author of The Fox Hunt: A Refugee’s Memoir of Coming to America (William Morrow), and a finalist for the National Jewish Book Awards. He is committed to the exchange of core values that define our religious traditions and hopes to advance this work through his interfaith organization “Abrahamic House” to build sustainable interfaith learning and action across Muslim, Jewish, and Christian communities in order to foster an environment of learning, respect and social change. 

Previously AL Samawi worked for several non-governmental organizations,  including Oxfam and World Relief. He also worked as a freelance researcher for Boehncke Information Technology GmbH for more than two years. In those capacities, he authored more than 30 studies and reports about Yemen and reported extensively on Sudan, including Darfur.
