Gelareh Asayesh in DC

Gelareh Asayesh, author of "Saffron Sky, A Life Between Iran and America" will be speaking at 6:30 p.m. Thursday November 18th, 1999, at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Rome Building, Room 806, 1619 Massachussetts Ave. NW, Washington D.C.

Asayesh will be signing books at the Iranbooks booth of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA) conference from 12:30 -2:30 Saturday, November 20th, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Asayesh, a longtime journalist, grew up in Iran and has traveled extensively there since 1990, most recently spending the Spring and part of the summer there. She will read from her book and talk about the challenges of composing a life out of disparate, contradictory elements; the immigrant's struggle for a cohesive identity, her trials and joys as a woman living and traveling in Iran, and how Iranians really see America.

A former staff writer for The Baltimore Sun and The Miami Herald, Asayesh has also written for The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and The St. Petersburg Times.

Her critically acclaimed book, out from Beacon Press this month, challenges common stereotypes of Iran and conveys a vivid, deeply personal portrait of a life, a land and a people. It is available from your local book store or online bookseller! For more information , reviews and excerpts of the book, visit on the web.
