Whisk away to Hollywood’s eclectic alcove of books for an emotional reading with distinguished scholar, historian, and human rights advocate Nina Ansary. Delving into segments of her new book Jewels of Allah: The Untold Story of Women in Iran, Ansary poses thought-provoking perspectives on the narrative of women in Iranian history. Expect a rather provocative and inspiring dialogue as she combats common stereotypes, highlights powerful female figures, and talks the post-revolutionary feminist movement. Come barring open ears, an open mind, and plenty of questions for this Tehran-native post-reading. For those interested in purchasing, all book proceeds will go towards charities and organizations supporting disadvantaged young women in Iran.
