Call for Submissions: Halal 2

About a year ago, I mentioned that Linda D. Delgado (Sis Widad) was putting together a second volume of her popular cookbook: Halal Food, Fun and Laughter. Although the deadline for submissions was originally August 2007 and then extended to September, it turns out that Sister Widad is still working on the book and accepting submissions in a variety of categories. Details are here (in the original announcement). The proceeds from this book will go to charity. Also, Sis Widad has decided to focus on healthy eating and provide more vegetarian recipes in Halal 2.

In other news, Sister Widad has started a new discussion group dedicated to Islamic fiction. I am also happy to announce that a fundraising initiative by raised more than $1200 for Sister Widad to pay for the design of five teacher-study guides that will, insha'Allah, be of significant benefit Muslim teachers and children.
