Local Author Discusses Islamic Extremism

May 02, 2013 - 2:37 PM

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District’s Library System is hosting a free talk by Dr. Max Zahir on Wednesday, May 15, 7 p.m., at the North Kamloops Library as he discusses his book 1947: A Memoir

of Indian Independence and the broader topic of Islamic fundamentalism. The event is part of the Library System’s three-week Spring Author Series.

Indian-born Dr. Zahir was a pathologist at Royal Inland Hospital from 1974 to 2003. He was also a Rhodes Scholar in the late 1950s and early 1960s after completing his schooling in India and Pakistan.

Drawing on his experiences living in both Eastern and Western cultures, as well as his time in academia, Dr. Zahir brings clarity and depth of understanding to the complex issue of Islamic fundamentalism.

The series is free, but seating is limited. Please call the North Kamloops Library to reserve a spot.
