In March we read the interesting memoir of Azar Nafisi entitled "Reading Lolita in Tehran." This was an incredibly rich narrative which discussed several literary classics such as "The Great Gatsby" and "Pride and Prejudice" in addition to Nabokov's "Lolita." The story takes place in Iran, and we read of the difficult lives the Iranians led during the 1979 Revolution, the Iran-Iraq War and later.
In April we will be reading "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. Please drop by the circulation desk to pick up a copy of the book. Hope to see you at our meeting on Wednesday, April 22nd at 10:30 am.
