    DescriptionJoin the Young Professionals International Forum for the new Voices of the World Author Series--a program designed to bring international writers of fiction, poetry, and memoir to the World Affairs Council to read from their writings and discuss the cultures they reflect.

    Our second author in the series will be Anita Amirrezvani who will read from and discuss her acclaimed novel, The Blood of Flowers, which is set in seventeenth century Persia, and tells the story of a teenage girl as she and her mother seek to establish a new life and destiny following the death of her father. The Blood of Flowers offers a rare look into the lives of Iranian women of the time, and transports readers to the vibrant markets of Isfahan, the cool stone rooms of the Shah's royal rug workshop, and the privacy of the hammam, one of the few places where women may reveal themselves. Amirrezvani's novel weaves centuries-old folklore and craft traditions into an observation of gender roles and cultural mores that are as timely today as ever.

    The program will be followed by a light reception.

    Check-in: 5:30 PM, Program: 6:00 PM, Reception: 7:00 PM

    Advanced registration is recommended for guaranteed seating. However, pre-registration is not required and walk-ins on the day of this program are welcome.
