Join us, when NYT Bestselling author Azar Nafisi explores the role of literature in an era when politics can greatly influence writers and the press. Drawing on her experiences as a woman and voracious reader living in the Islamic Republic of Iran, her life as an immigrant in the United States, and her role as literature professor in both countries, Azar has written a guide to the power of literature in turbulent times. In her book READ DANGEROUSLY, Nafisi crafts an argument for why, in a genuine democracy, we must engage with the enemy, and how literature can be a vehicle for doing so, on this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI 99.5FM.
