Event Details

Bay Area writers from the Association of Iranian American Writers (AIAW) will share their literary work at a reading at the San Francisco Public Library’s Koret Auditorium on Saturday, December 12th from 2-4pm. The event will bear witness to the extraordinary courage of the Iranian people on the six-month anniversary of the contested elections, which took place on June 12, 2009.

Among the writers who will share their work are authors of recently published books: Laleh Khadivi (The Age of Orphans, 2009), Elizabeth Eslami (Bone Worship, 2010), and Angella Nazarian (Life as a Visitor, 2009).
