CHILDREN OF DUST
Tonight we welcome to the studio Ali Eteraz, author of Children of Dust: A Memoir of Pakistan. In his book, Eteraz takes us through his life--from being born to a strict Muslim family in a rural Pakistani village, moving to the United States as a teenager and attempting to reconcile being a normal American teenager with his families strict Muslim beliefs, his return to Pakistan and his disillusionment with doctrinaire Islam, and his eventual return to the United States and his embrace of a more liberal Islam. We'll talk with him tonight about his journey and the state of Islam today.

We'll talk about the program tonight with three of its administrators, Harold Pollack, Tony DiVittorio and Vivian Loseth, and one of the programs alumni, Vincent Rosado, now a student at Northeastern Illinois University.
