Read Around the World: Iran
Our September title is Song of a Captive Bird by Jasmin Darznik. REGISTER HERE.
A spellbinding debut novel about the trailblazing Iranian poet Forugh Farrokhzad, who defied society’s expectations to find her voice and her destiny. Inspired by Farrokhzad’s verse, letters, films, and interviews, this haunting novel uses the lens of fiction to capture the tenacity, spirit, and conflicting desires of a brave woman who represents the birth of feminism in Iran—and who continues to inspire generations of women around the world.
