The Alan Cheuse International Writers Center is hosting its inaugural public lecture on April 4th, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. at the Stacy C. Sherwood Community Center, 3740 Blenheim Boulevard (formerly Old Lee Hwy). Sponsored by Busboys and Poets, this series of annual lectures will cover literature, culture, and global affairs.

This year's lecture will be delivered by Azar Nafisi, the New York Times bestselling author of Reading Lolita in Tehran. Reflecting on current events to support women's rights in Iran, Nafisi’s speech will touch on the two countries she calls home, and how totalitarianism in one country and totalitarian tendencies in another should be confronted through imagination and ideas. The evening will include a book signing and reception framed by the work of Mojdeh Rezaeipour, an Iranian-born Northern Virginia artist.
