Project Description

PersepolisThis autobiography in graphic novel form caught our interest because of the Iranian background of the author. Iranian discussants assured us that Satrapi’s experience was typical of the upper class family in Teheran during the time period she covers. Members commented on the unique experience of “reading” the art as well as the words. It was a novel and powerful experience.
