Persepolis: Marjane Satrapi coming to Case 4.4

Marjane Satrapi, the writer/illustrator of the graphic novel Persepolis will be speaking at Amasa Stone Chapel (on Euclid Ave. across from Severance Hall) on the CWRU campus on Friday April 4 at 4:30pm. Event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 4pm.

George Woideck says: "Persepolis is the story of a young Persian girl growing up during the Islamic revolution in Iran. It was recently released as an animated movie and was nominated for an Academy Award. The film will be shown at the Cleveland Cinemateque later that evening. I highly recommend both events, plus the book if you haven't read it. It's a powerful graphic novel of horrendous events told through a child's eyes."
