CAMP Chicago November Power Hour
Do you have an idea for a book, movie or play, but wonder how you can get it done juggling your full-time job and other obligations? Join us for a discussion about how to make your creative aspirations a reality with our featured guest, Nura Maznavi, an attorney and editor of the book Love InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women. Nura will share her experience of having an idea for a book and seeing it through publication, balancing long work days, unexpected business trips, and family responsibilities (and criticism!) along the way. A Q&A session will follow afterwards.
