Bestselling author Reza Aslan will present "Beyond Fundamentalism: Religion, Tolerance and the Modern World" April 6 to conclude The Forum series for 2015-16 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Schofield Auditorium on UW-Eau Claire's lower campus. A reception and book signing will be held in the Dulany Inn of Davies Center following the presentation.
Aslan is often in the media, including appearances on "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report," among other high-profile outlets. He is the host of the new CNN spiritual adventure series "Believer," where he participates in endurance worship, rituals and rites of passage to learn about worlds that have been molded by faith and tradition.
Tickets are available for order online, by phone at 715-836-3727, at the Service Center in Davies Center's east lobby or at the door the day of the event.
The Forum is funded by the students of UW-Eau Claire. Speakers are selected and administered by the Activities, Involvement and Leadership office of the University Centers and by an administrative committee composed of students, faculty, staff and community members. General promotional support provided by WHYS Radio and Wisconsin Public Radio.
As one of the longest continuous programs of its kind in the U.S., The Forum has worked to present many of the world’s leading personalities since its founding in 1942.
