The Jewel of Medina

Joe Hardtke

Have you heard of Sherry Jones? She's the former Montana newspaper reporter who was inspired by 9/11 to write The Jewel of Medina, her novel about the prophet Muhammed and his feminist leanings. Then the troubles began.

This has become a very controversial topic, but it's tailor-made for a show like Here on Earth. I hear her publisher is trying to keep her out of the press, but I'm going to see if she's willing to talk to us, if only for part of the show. Any thoughts?
