Book Fest Draws Big Crowds, Big Names
Seattle University attracts notable and noteworthy speakers to campus. Case in point: Writer and
scholar Tariq Ramadan, who was a keynote speaker at the School of Theology and Ministry's Search for
Meaning Pacific Northwest Spirituality Book Festival in February. Ramadan is a professor of
Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University and a noted author on issues of Muslims in the
West and Islamic revival in the Muslim world. This is the third year of the literary festival.
