Yesterday's children, today's parents, have lost their storyteller. Khanom Atefi, her voice known to millions of children who listened to her reading stories on Radio Iran, passed awayon September 20, 2002.

I wish I had more pictures of her. I only have this casette cover of one of her stories.

She used to call herself "ghesseh-gooyeh shomaa" (Your Storyteller). I talked to her about 10 years ago when she was a newscaster on Voice of America's Persian service. "I am old. I should be retired, these are my retirement days. But I'm still working," she said.
