Every week for two years in Iran, Azar Nafisi secretly gathered seven of her most committed female students to read forbidden Western classics. This extraordinary memoir is an exploration of resilience in the face of tyranny and a celebration of the liberating power of literature.

Azar Nafisi is Executive Director of Cultural Conversations at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, where she also teaches culture and literature at the School of Advanced International Studies. She is internationally known as an advocate for the rights of Iranian youth, women, and intellectuals. Her books include Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books and Things I Have Been Silent About.
