The October book for the NWUUC Book Groupies is the graphic novel Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. This memoir of her childhood in Tehran gives us an intimate portrait of the overthrow of a Shah’s regime, followed by the Islamic Revolution and eventually the war with Iraq. Marjane was the great-granddaughter of one of Iran’s last emperors but her parents were committed Marxists, which adds even more complexity to her story.
Join us in the Art Gallery Tuesday, October 8th at 7 pm , as we discuss Persepolis. This book is available in our bookstore.
