There is perhaps no one more qualified to speak about the transformative
power of literature than Azar Nafisi, whose #1 New York Times-bestseller,
Reading Lolita in Tehran, told the story of a teacher¹s mission to share
the literary classics with students in revolutionary Iran. Her follow-up
book, The Republic of Imagination, is a meditation on the vital importance
of fiction in a democratic society. Drawing on her experiences in Iran and
the United States, Nafisi discusses the role of literature in resisting
tyranny and safeguarding democracy. Aspenwords.org
