Moustafa Bayoumi is the author of two books, How Does It Feel To Be a Problem?: Being Young and Arab in America and This Muslim American Life: Dispatches from the War on Terror, both winners of the Arab-American Book Award in nonfiction. He will speak in a free, public forum at Skidmore this Thursday, April 6, at 7 p.m. in Gannett Auditorium.  

Bayoumi and his many sponsoring offices on campus hope that his talk, titled “This Muslim American Life in the Age of Donald Trump,” will bring together students, faculty, staff, and members of the surrounding community to learn about what he calls the “War on Terror culture” that has existed in the United States for more than a decade.

A professor of English at Brooklyn College, Bayoumi is also a columnist for the Guardian and a journalist whose work has appeared in The Nation, New York Times Magazine, London Review of Books,, and other major media.
