Esteemed writer and professor Nahid Rachlin will read from her memoir and her latest novel. Persian Girls traces not only Nahid’s life, but also the interconnected lives of her aunt, mother, and sisters, in a tale of crushing sorrow, sisterhood, and ultimately, hope. Exuding the melancholy of an outsider, this memoir gives American readers insight into some Iranians' ambivalence toward the United States, a perception of freedom clashing with hegemony. In her novel Jumping Over Fire, Rachlin illuminates the private and public consequences of the Islamic revolution and delivers a clear and complex portrayal of a divided Iran.
