Author visit and Pageturners change of date
Pageturners book discussion group will meet a week earlier than usual on Wednesday 5 November at 5.30pm for a 6pm start at Orange City Library to hear author Banafsheh Serov talk about her memoir Under a Starless Sky about her family's escape from Iran. At first her family was filled with hope as the Shah's rule collapsed and the Ayatollah Khomeini made his triumphant return. But they quickly came to realise that Iran had traded one dictator for another, more ruthless ruler. From the streets and bazaars of Tehran to the moonlit Turkish mountains, Under a Starless Sky is a detailed memoir about her family's extraordinary journey. The event is presented by Angus & Robertson, Central West Libraries and the Central West Writers' Centre and bookings are essential by calling the Library on 6393 8132. Everyone is welcome.
