WHAT ARE WE READING?
Reading Across Campus is pleased to announce the Academic Year 2018-2019 common reading text: The Moor’s Account.
 
This novel by Moroccan writer Laila L.alami is a memoir of the first black explorer of America: Mustafa al-Zamori, called Estebanico. As the slave of a Spanish conquistador, Estebanico journeys across America, encountering danger and disease. Lalami captures an unheard voice in this doomed 16th-century expedition and illustrates the power of the storyteller to turn tales into history.
 
The Moor’s Account is available in many formats, including a version freely accessible through the AUD Library’s e-resources. You can access this free download here: http://koha.aud.edu.
 
We look forward to many opportunities to discuss this novel in AY 2018-19!
