Writer Susanne Pari has assembled a fascinating look at the lives of
Iranian-American women through a panel of authors reading from and discussing
their works, the modern immigrant experience and its impact both on writing
and the role of women.
Whether writing fiction or non-fiction, Gina B. Nahai ("Moonlight
on the Avenue of Faith"), Tara Bahrampour ("To See and See Again:
A Life in Iran and America"), Roxane Farmanfarmaian ("Blood &
Oil: Inside the Shah's Iran"), and Susanne Pari ("The Fortune
Catcher") offer compelling examinations of what it means to be Iranian,
American, and female.
