We are honored to welcome the author for a stirring conversation
about the confluence of sacrifice and the American Dream.

They were among the most searing images of the 2016 election season: the face of young Captain Humayun Khan, killed while serving with the US Army in Iraq, projected onto an enormous screen at the Democratic National Convention, and the well-worn copy of the US Constitution waved by his father, Khizr Khan, as he passionately addressed the assembly and, indeed, the world.

Now, with the publication of his memoir, this Gold Star father will bring his remarkable life story — and brand of patriotism — to the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center. An American Family is an intensely personal account of Khan’s journey from a Pakistani poultry farm to Harvard Law School to the stage of the Democratic National Convention in homage to his heroic son.
