Mostly Literary Fiction Book Group: “Rooftops of Tehran”
Monday, December 14th, 2009 - with two meetings: Noon @ Peet’s Coffee and Tea, located at the corner of B Street and Mission, Downtown Hayward & 6:30 p.m. @ our usual meeting place at the Hayward Main Library, 835 C St. at Mission Blvd., Hayward, CA. 94541 (2 Blocks from Hayward BART)

We will be discussing Rooftops of Tehran, a debut novel by Bay Area author Mahbod Seraji. Rooftops of Tehran is a story of young love and growing up in 1970s Iran, then headed toward revolution. In a middle-class neighborhood of Iran’s sprawling capital city, 17-year-old Pasha Shahed spends one perfect, stolen summer with his beautiful neighbor, Zari, until he unwittingly guides the Shah’s secret police to their target: Zari’s intended. The violent consequences awaken Pasha and his friends to the reality of life under the rule of a powerful despot, and lead Zari to make a choice from which Pasha may never recover. Discussion facilitated by Sally Thomas. With the addition of a noon-time meeting, we invite you to join us at a new time and location. Bring a bag lunch and treat yourself to one of Peet’s Coffee & Tea specialty beverages and something sweet to eat. Everyone else - we’ll see you at our usual meeting time and place in the evening.
