By Marvine Howe

Marvine Howe takes us behind Morocco's exotic facade to discover the largely tolerant Muslim country, struggling to catch up with modern times and cope with the penetration of political Islam, sweeping the world. Marvine Howe, a former reporter for The New York Times, began her career as a free-lance journalist in North Africa. She will be talking about her latest book: "Morocco: The Islamist Awakening and Other Challenges".
