'The Enlightenment of the Greengage Tree' - Author Encounter

Don’t miss this chance to meet and hear former journalist and writer Shokoofeh Azar discuss her novel 'The Enlightenment of the Greengage Tree'. 

Forced to leave Iran with her family in 2011, she was accepted as a political refugee by Australia; Shokoofeh has made her home locally. Her extraordinarily powerful novel has been short-listed for this year’s Stella Prize and is set in Iran as a reimagining of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. The book is written in the lyrical magical realism style of classical Persian storytelling.

Shokoofeh will discuss her book with John Bartlett, member Surf Coast Rural Australians for Refugees
