Book Talk at Al Qantara Library

The date, time and location of the book signing has been decided on and it will be at 8 slt in the plaza on July 7th. If you find you enjoyed the topics in this book feel free to ask us for our other books on al Andalus that have been written specifically for circulation within our library. For instance, I allude briefly to the importance of paper production in al Andaus in my most recent work but I have a more in depth work about paper and how it came to al Andalus and why it exactly became so lucrative and successful. Within the same vein I have also written a book about the libraries of al Andalus and how they served as a symbol of al Andalus' reputation as a leading academic center. So if you're interested in learning more about al Andalus, please lets us know and we'll be happy to give you a copy!
While we are blogging about our ventures observations on Second Life, this blog is also a place to discuss topics related to al Andalus, or Medieval Muslim Spain, the inspiration for the al Qantara library in Second Life. If there are topics you'd like to know more about or are interested in discussing please let us know!
We will most likely have some guests posts shortly, so please look out for those!
