The Wilmington University Library Brown Bag Book Club Presents:

PERSEPOLIS:
Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood The Story of a Childhood

Thursday, October 16th
12:00 noon
Room 122, Peoples Library Building

From front flap: “Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran preceding and during the revolution. Marjane Satrapi’s child’s-eye view of dethroned emperors, state-sanctioned whippings, and heroes of the revolution is conveyed through pictures similar to a comic book. Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, with laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity. And, finally, it introduces us to an irresistible little girl with whom we cannot help but fall in love.”
