Donate Books to the American University of Iraq

Christopher Hitchens is making an appeal to donate books, helping to build the university library in Iraq.

So here's what to do. Have a look at the university's Web site. Get some decent volumes together, pass the word to your friends and co-workers to do the same, and send them off to:

Nathan Musselman
The American University of Iraq—Sulaimani
Building No. 7, Street 10
Quarter 410
Ablakh Area
Sulaimani, Iraq
(+964) (0)770-461-5099

It's important to include the number at the end.

Read the whole thing. I'm sure Hitchens wouldn't want you to donate Christian books of any kind (!), and it'd probably be inappropriate for the university to receive devotional-type books--but donating academic books related to Christianity would seem entirely appropriate and helpful.
