International author reads at NMU

Internationally acclaimed author Nahid Rachlin will be coming to NMU on Thursday, Sept. 20.
The event is free to attend, and will take place 7:30 p.m., on Thursday, Sept. 20, in the Brule Room on the second floor of the University Center.

Rachlin will be reading from her memoir “Persian Girls.”

An award-winning book, “Persian Girls” was selected by Christopher Merrill, Director of the Iowa International Writing Program, as one of the best four books of the year upon its release in 2006.

Since then, it has received favorable reviews from NPR, The World, Boston Globe and Brooklyn Today.

Beverly Matherne, director of the visiting writer’s program in the English department, is organizing the reading.

“We are honored to have a writer of such international stature on our campus,” Matherne said.

Rachlin’s book describes her life while growing up in Iran and her later adjustment to American culture.

The event is sponsored by the creative writing department in the English department. For more information, call Matherne at (906) 227-1386.
