    This month's guest reader will be Safa Samiezade=Yazd, an Iranian-American solo theatre artist who works to transform politics into poetics. As a citizen of both countries, Safa has always lived as "the other", and does not try to change history or politics, but rather attempts to synthesize them into a new identity that other Iranian-Americans may be able to claim. Works include "Cover Girl," "Are You My Father," "Khomeini and Me," and "Persian Princess Alchemy."
