Event description

Description

Don’t miss this chance to meet and hear former journalist and writer Shokoofeh Azar discuss her novel The Enlightenment of the Greengage Tree. Forced to leave Iran with her family in 2011, Shokoofeh was accepted as a political refugee by Australia and has made her home in the Geelong region. Her extraordinarily powerful and evocative novel, which is her first to be translated into English has been short-listed for this year’s Stella Prize and is set in Iran and is a reimagining of the 1979 Islamic Revolution and its aftermath, and is written in the lyrical magical realism style of classical Persian storytelling.
