The Arab/Muslim World: How It Looks in Books for American Children

Elsa Marston

Abstract


A lot of my writing is about the Middle East and Arab-Americans. That's because my husband, Iliya Harik, is from Lebanon; family connections and his work as a political scientist have taken us to that part of the world many times. I want to share with young readers my own interest in those lands and peoples, and equally important, contribute to better understanding of the Arab/Muslim world.
