If you are coming to MVCC’s library to visit the “A is for Arab” traveling exhibit, which is on display from November 5 through December 10, please also check out the “American Qur’an” book which is new to our collection. The beautifully illustrated, oversized, book was created by Sandow Birk over a 9 year period. It contains all 114 suras (chapters of the Qur’an) paired with scenes from American contemporary life.
