“The Muslim librarians on this blog aim to take a look at Muslims in literature in today’s world. We seek to give voice to Muslim Literature through the lens of OUR expertise as professionals and to give OUR opinions as Muslim Americans. As Muslim Librarians we’ve noticed that while there is a growing number of books with Muslim protagonists being published, there are a lack of review sites dedicated to librarians and teachers penned by Muslim professionals in the literature community. We aim to recognize, celebrate and honor the books and authors that get it right.”
