Lipstick Jihad (3/14)

Azadeh Moaveni
Lipstick Jihad: A Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America and American in Iran
Monday, March 14th at 7:30 p.m.
Capitola Book Cafe
As far back as she can remember, UCSC graduate Moaveni has felt at odds with her Iranian-American identity. At home, she served tea, clung to tradition, and dreamed of Tehran. Outside, she practiced yoga and listened to Madonna. After studying Arabic in Egypt, she moved to Iran as a journalist for Time magazine. This is the story of her search for her place between two cultures cleaved apart by a violent history. She also paints a rare portrait of the rebellious Iranian next generation and their restive land lost in the twilight of its revolution.
