We Are All Iran -- San Francisco Public Library

If you've looked over at the cover of Bone Worship lately and wondered if A)it looks somewhat different and B) if you've gone somewhat crazy, don't fret. The cover has indeed changed slightly, but I love it just as much. (I hope you do too! :)

In other news, on December 12th, I'll be reading from my novel with several wonderful AIAW writers at the We Are All Iran event at the San Francisco Public Library. I'm thrilled to be the company of such an excellent group of writers. If you're in the Bay Area, please come and join us.

Sat, Dec. 12th, 2-4 pm - SF Public Library
We Are All Iran: A Literary Reading to Mark the 6-month Anniversary of the Iranian Elections
The June 12, 2009 Iranian presidential election put the international spotlight on Iran and the courageous acts of its citizens who filled the streets of Tehran to protest the election results. The days and weeks that followed June 12th--when ordinary citizens took to the streets to protest, to raise their voices-- inspired people around the globe..
As the months have dragged on and media coverage has waned, the U.S. news headlines have refocused on Iran's nuclear ambitions--and by doing so have minimized the spirit and energy of the Iranian people in their efforts to challenge their government.
To remember and bear witness to the extraordinary courage of the Iranian people, Bay Area writers from the Association of Iranian American Writers (AIAW) will share their literary work at the San Francisco Public Library.
Bay Area poets and novelists will read from published and recent work and invite members of the community to share with us as we remember the courage and sacrifice of those in Iran struggling for democracy, human rights, and to have their voices heard.

Authors to read include:

Persis Karim (introduction)

Laleh Khadivi
Esther Kamkar
Elizabeth Eslami
Ari Siletz
Anahid Hojjati
Farnoosh Seifoddini
Tissa Hami
Katayoon Zandvakili

Date: Saturday, December 12, 2009
