Reading Lolita in Tehran
Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi (Other Nonfiction)
Reading this book made me glad to be a woman in America, I can't imagine having to hid what I am reading for fear of punishment or worse. It's a beautifully written memoir! A college professor creates a small group of her most eager female students, who meet once a week in her home to read the classics. As soon as the girls walk into her home they shed their robes and scarves, revealing their true individual self in well appointed clothes that we might wear, jewelry and styled hair. As a reader, you get to go on a journey with the girls, getting to know them as they read literature and embark on a two year stint of self-discovery and friendship. Books are the great equalizer, we are more alike than different! Loved the book! -- Added by mes925 on 03/01/2017
