Book Club: Persepolis

Join Book Club for an evening of community and conversation as we discuss Marjane Satrapi’s best-selling, internationally acclaimed graphic memoirPersepolis.

Persepolis tells the story of Satrapi’s unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland.

Often heartbreaking but threaded throughout with raw humor and hard-earned wisdom, Persepolis is a stunning work from one of the most highly regarded, singularly talented graphic artists at work today. Please email uvanyc@uvanyc.org to RSVP.
