About the event:

This evening’s program includes a talk, Q&A, book sales and book signing. Khizr Khan’s book, An American Family, is an intensely personal story about the nature of what it’s like to risk everything you know for the promises contained in the U.S. Constitution. As Khan traces his remarkable journey, he shows what it means to leave the limitations of one’s country behind for the best values and promises of another. The book is a stark depiction of what an American looks like, what being a nation of immigrants really means, and what it is to live—rather than simply to pay lip service to—our ideals.

About the Speaker:

Khizr Khan was born in Gujranwala, a city in rural Pakistan. He moved to the United States with his wife, Ghazala, in 1980. The couple became American citizens in 1986, and raised their three sons in Silver Spring, Maryland. His middle son, Captain Humayun Khan, was killed in 2004 by a suicide attack near Baqubah, Iraq, and was posthumously awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star. Khan works as a legal consultant, and is involved with the University of Virginia’s ROTC program.

Co-sponsored by: Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry,
