I WAS TOLD TO COME ALONE: My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad
Monday, November 13, 1:30 p.m.
As an independent, unmarried Muslim woman who grew up in Germany and is now an award-winning reporter for the Washington Post, Souad Mekhennet has lived her entire life between cultures. Her complex cultural identity has granted her access to some of the world’s most dangerous terrorist operatives, including members of ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban. In her new book, we accompany Mekhennet on her quest through the neighborhoods of European cities where terror has come to the heart of Western civilization and in tense meetings in Iraq and Syria with terrorist leaders (which led to a surprising number of marriage proposals). As an investigative reporter, Mekhennet seeks answers to questions about the roots of militant extremism.
