Great Reads – Reminder

Nafisi, Azar (2004) Reading Lolita in Tehran; a Memoir in Books.  Hodder. For two years before she left Iran in 1997, Azar Nafisi gathered seven young women in her house every Thursday morning to read and discuss forbidden works of Western literature. The stories of these women are intertwined with the books they are reading.  Gives us a rare view into women’s lives in revolutionary Iran.  An original voice.

Clinton, Hillary Rodham (2003) Living History; Memoirs.  Headline.   Hillary Clinton came of age during a time of tumultuous social and political change in America. A revealing memoir of her White House years, where she charted her own course as the only First Lady to play a major role in shaping domestic legislation.  A woman who has defined her own voice – wife, mother, lawyer, and international icon.
