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
