Marjane Satrapi in conversation with Barbara Lane, JCCSF Director of Lectures & Literature.
When published in France, Marjane Satrapi’s graphic novel Persepolis, the story of growing up in Iran during the Islamic revolution and war with Iraq, garnered comparisons to Art Spiegelman’s Maus, and won several prestigious comic book awards.
"You've never seen anything like Persepolis – Marjane Satrapi may have given us a new genre." –Gloria Steinem
