Persepolis Book Discussion

Miami University Libraries will be hosting its second Muslim Journeys* Book Discussion on January 30th from 4:00 to 5:00 in King 320.  There will be a short presentation from a scholar, a discussion of the book, and light refreshments.  Our scholar for this book will be Dr. Mark McKinney, professor of French.

Our second book will be Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi.  You can find out more about this book and the other books we will be reading in our discussion series here. You can read an interview with the author here, find out about the recent Chicago school ban here, and read an original review here. You might also be interested in watching the movie version of this graphic novel, though we still recommend you read the book too!

We encourage you to sign up for the book discussions so that you can receive free copies of the selected books. You can read more about our Muslim Journeys programming on the website.

If you are interested in even more books to read, check out some of the books from our bookshelf: Bridging Cultures: Literary ReflectionsBridging Cultures: American Stories, and Bridging Cultures: Connected Histories.

*Our Muslim Journeys programming is sponsored by the American Library Association, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Miami University Humanities Center.  Additional support provided by the Miami University Center for American and World Cultures and the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati.
