    Firoozeh Dumas will read and sign her book, 'Laughing Without an Accent: Adventures of an Iranian-American, at Home and Abroad.'

    Dumas tells her story of being a citizen of the world in her American, Iranian, Parisian family in “Laughing Without an Accent,” a series of humorous autobiographical essays.

    Whether describing her Iranian family's wonder at her French husband's Christmas traditions, comparing questionable delicacies in international cuisines, conveying the experience of taking 51 Iranian family members on a birthday cruise to Alaska, or going on a road trip to Iowa with a former American hostage in Iran, Dumas’s wit and insight illuminate the universality of the human condition.

    Dumas is the author of the national bestseller, “Funny in Farsi,” which was a finalist for the PEN/USA award in 2004 and an Audie Award in 2005 for best audio book. She was also a finalist for the prestigious Thurber Prize for American Humor, the first Middle Eastern woman ever to receive this honor. The Persian version of “Funny in Farsi” is currently one of the bestselling books in Iran.

    Originally from Iran, Dumas moved with her family to Southern California at the age of seven. She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley. She lives with her husband and children in Northern California.
