Welcome to Between the Lines Book Club! This month we will be discussing Persepolis in this space and in person at Arden Dimick Library on August 24, 2019 at 10:30AM. Please join us!
Persepolis is a memoir by Marjane Satrapi in which she discusses growing up during the Islamic Revolution in Iran. In 2007, Satrapi released an animated movie based on the book. She wrote and directed the movie in collaboration with Vincent Paronnaud. The movie is available at Sacramento Public Library as well as Amazon and Itunes. It covers both volumes of Persepolis (the first volume was about Satrapi as a child and the second published volume covered her as a young adult). It was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 80th Academy Awards. Here’s the trailer!
