    Award-winning graphic novelist and artist Marjane Satrapi makes a rare U.S. appearance. Stories of her family?from dethroned emperors to heroes of the revolution?are captured in Persepolis, a book based on her own personal experience of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. The animated film adaptation of Persepolis won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008 and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. A live action film based on her book Chicken with Plums will be released in France in October 2011, and a U.S. release date is forthcoming. Join us for an intriguing evening with Marjane Satrapi as she discusses the origins of her creative process and work, expressing the enduring complexity and richness of Persian culture in today?s Middle East.
