Published on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 - 10:44am
As part of our season of DC Reads programming related to Azar Nafisi’s memoir Reading Lolita in Tehran, the Mt. Pleasant Library will screen two movies exploring life in contemporary Iran.
The first one, screening Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m., is Persepolis, based on the graphic novel by Mariane Satrapi. Winner of multiple international awards, Persepolis chronicles the turbulent times experienced by the Satrapi family in 1970s Iran during the fall of the Shah and the rise of the Islamic Republic, as seen through the eyes of the willful and rebellious Marji.
Join us for this wonderful film in the meeting room on the main floor. This film is rated PG-13.
