The Complete Persepolis Selected for the 2010 One Book, One Philadelphia
Iranian-French author Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel, The Complete Persepolis, has been announced as the selection for the 2010 One Book, One Philadelphia.
"Marjane's book was a natural choice given the recent events in Iran," said Marie Field, chair of the citywide literacy program. One Book, which is entering its eighth year, will feature more than 100 lectures, discussion groups, and workshops at numerous venues throughout the city. Organizers also will help coordinate high school programs for students in 10th grade and up.
