Azar Nafisi at RCC

Dr. Azar Nafisi: Iranian American Bestselling Author

The Iranian American bestselling author of Reading Lolita in Tehran, Azar Nafisi has electrified 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, it was named one of the “100 Best Books of the Decade” by The Times (London). Nafisi will discuss it and her other work, The Republic of Imagination: America in Three Books, and share her sharp observations.

Copies of her books will be on sale prior to and after her presentation, and she will sign them.
