Virtual Book Tasting for Adults
Book Tasting For Adults: Ehsaneh Sadr
Hicklebee’s annual event highlighting adult fiction and non-fiction goes online this fall. Whether you're looking for your next book club title, a fresh fireside read, or perfect gifts, we'll help you find the right books.
Join us this year for a presentation by Ehsaneh Sadr, whose debut novel is a family story set amid the 2009 Green Movement protests in Iran. A Door Between Us is a spellbinding novel about the repercussions of a stolen election--and the way deeply held convictions divide its characters. (We are planning this event for nine days after our own election which should make for an interesting conversation.)
Your $10 ticket includes an annotated list of the books that will be discussed. Purchase Eventbrite Tickets Here!
Ehsaneh grew up with an American Mormon mother and an Iranian Muslim father; at various times the family lived in Tehran, Salt Lake City, and a Maryland suburb of Washinton, D.C. She has a Ph.D. in international relations and has worked on campaigns related to Palestinian human rights, Iranian sanctions, access to credit for rural villagers, and safe spaces for children in crisis. She currently works as the development director of the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition and lives in San Jose with her husband and two children.
We look forward to seeing you at this virtual event!
