On Tuesday night, May 8, at 6:30 p.m. at the Solana Beach Library, the Friends of the Library are hosting a presentation by local author Zohreh Ghahremani who will speak about her new book, “Sky of Red Poppies.” This book is a 2012 One Book-One San Diego Selection and is a stunning and poetic tale about two girls coming of age in Iran during the 1960s. Set against the backdrop of a nation forced to mute its profound identity, it is a novel about culture, politics and the redeeming power of friendships.
Zohreh Ghahremani was a dentist in another life. She studied dentistry in Iran and pediatric dentistry at London University, England. After more than two decades of practicing in the Chicago area and teaching at Northwestern University, she moved to La Jolla and became a full-time writer.
The Solana Beach Library is located at 157 Stevens Avenue, Solana Beach (858-755-1404). This program is free to the public.
