A Virtual Visit with Author Marjan Kamali

Thursday, May 21, 7 pm

Via Zoom

This event is now past. You can watch the event video here.

The Friends of the Library were delighted to welcome Marjan Kamali! She read from her latest book, talked about her writing and answered questions from the audience. Kamali’s novel The Stationery Shop, part historical novel and part romance, tells the story of two young lovers torn apart by the political upheaval of the 1950s in Iran. It was a Boston Globe best-seller, an Indie Next Pick, one of Newsweek’s 30 Best Summer Books, and was named to numerous “Best Books of 2019” lists.


Kamali’s previous novel, Together Tea, was a Massachusetts Book Award Finalist, among other awards. It is a story of mothers and daughters, arranged marriages and culture clashes.


Visit the author’s website to learn more about the books and read excerpts from both.
