“[Nafisi] reminds us why we read in the first place.”—Newsday. Dr. Azar Nafisi is best known as the author of the national bestseller Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books, which electrified its readers with a compassionate and often harrowing portrait of the Islamic revolution in Iran and how it affected one university professor and her students. Earning high acclaim and an enthusiastic readership, in 2009 Reading Lolita in Tehran was named as one of the “100 Best Books of the Decade” by The Times (London). Her most recent book is The Republic of Imagination: America in Three Books. Registration for this event will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
