Southwest Book Club Meets September 5
The Southwest Book Club will be meeting on Tuesday, September 5, 2006 at 7:00 p.m. in the library to discuss the book Lipstick Jihad by Azadeh Moaveni.
Lipstick Jihad is Moaveni's memoir of growing up Iranian in Amercia and American in Iran. Moaveni, an American child of Iranian exiles during the Islamic Revolution eloquently describes her personal search to "figure out her relationship" to Iran. Moaveni's childhood and adolesence did not prepare her for the realities she faced working as a journalist in Tehran during 2000-2001. Moaveni gives the reader insightful descriptions of recent Iranian history, culture and the Islamic Revolution; and of the struggle to integrate two cultures within herself.
The Southwest Book Club meets the 1st Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. Anyone age 18 or older is welcome. For more information, please email mayer.sandy (at) ocls.info
