The Windham World Affairs Council is pleased to announce an online Zoom talk and discussion by Pulitzer prize nominated author Arthur Magida
Sunday December 13, 2020, 4 – 5:30 PM
“Code Name Madeleine: A conversation on courage and compassion with Arthur Magida”
Noor Inayat Khan’s courage, faith, and adherence to truth are much needed in our own chaotic and turbulent age. Noor’s father brought Sufism (Islamic mysticism) to the West in 1910. While serving as a secret agent for the British in France during World War Two, Noor – poet, musician and author – never strayed from Sufi teachings of love, service and forgiveness. For ten months, she organized cells, invigorated the Resistance, sent messages to London indispensable for D-Day, all while constantly on the run from the Gestapo. Arthur Magida – author of Code Name Madeleine, the Pulitzer Prize-nominated new biography of Noor – will discuss how we can harness Noor’s strengths and unique qualities for the greater good today.
This talk is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
