Where: Bioscience Research Building : Building #413 : 1101
Event Type(s): Other,Lecture,Special Event

Plots. Political intrigue. Treachery. The high-handed actions of omnipotent rulers. Death by decree.


That's the world that Bahiyyih Nakhjavani plunges readers into with The Woman Who Read Too Much: Persia in the mid-nineteenth century, a society that clings to the old ways even as the world around it is rapidly transforming. When a female poet, a historical figure who was also a theologian and revolutionary, dares to reject the veil and begin agitating for female literacy, her campaign shakes the very foundations of Persian society.


Join Bahiyyih Nakhjavani as she discusses her latest book The Woman Who Read Too Much.
