I know, I know. Tomorrow’s free lecture with Marjane Satrapi, author of this year’s One Book, One Philadelphia featured reading selection, has been on your calendar since we announced the selection last week. But just in case it slipped your mind—or perhaps you lost your planner—tomorrow is your only chance to see Satrapi live in Philadelphia for the 2010 One Book program period!
A humorous and heartbreaking memoir of growing up in Iran during a time of political revolution, Satrapi’s The Complete Persepolis is the first graphic novel chosen for One Book. Accompanying children and teen reading selections will be announced during tomorrow’s celebration, which begins at 7:30 p.m. The event is free, so be sure to arrive early and get a good seat! And don’t forget to stick around after the lecture—Satrapi will be autographing copies of her book!
The 2010 One Book program period officially begins on January 20, and in the coming months, we will discuss chapters of The Complete Persepolis right here on the blog. Stop by and share your thoughts!
