Tabby Davoodi Lecture: Welcome to America

Persian New Year Poster

Tabby Davoodi was born in the Islamic Republic of Iran shortly after the Iranian Revolution. Her childhood in Iran was deeply affected by the dangerous regime change that brought Ayatollah Khomeini to power and the missile raids ordered by Saddam Hussein against Tabby's home city during the Iran-Iraq War. Tabby's family eventually escaped to the United Stats during the height of tension between Iran and the West. Her personal stories, photographs and reflections will shed light on one of the most important countries in the world today, revealing why events in Iran are important to the life of every American.

We would like to invite you all to our early annual Chaharshanbeh Souri the Friday before finals week this year.

This is a potluck, so if everyone could post what they are planning on bringing it would be great!

We are going to celebrate this years Chaharshanbeh Souri a bit earlier than the official date this year, due to many people's final schedule on Tuesday.
