Writer Angella M. Nazarian reads from Life as a Visitor, her account of fleeing Iran with her family and life as an immigrant caught between two cultures

Writer Angella M. Nazarian reads from Life as a Visitor, her account of fleeing Iran with her family and life as an immigrant caught between two cultures, on Tuesday, April 20, at 7 p.m. at the Harry Ransom Center.

A book signing follows.

Forced to flee to the United States at age eleven after the violent Iranian Revolution of 1979, best-selling author Angella Nazarian talks about her journey from past to present, from the exotic to the familiar, and from a country's political struggle to her own inner struggle in search of home, family, and sense of belonging.

Life as a Visitor chronicles Nazarian's difficult and triumphant journey to blend East and West. Her book offers an intimate look at what life is like for an immigrant caught between two cultures.

Nazarian is a professor of psychology and facilitates adult personal development workshops. She is an avid traveler, photographer, and art enthusiast and has integrated these passions into her writing and her contributions to the Huffington Post and other publications.

Please be aware that the Ransom Center's Charles Nelson Prothro Theater has limited seating. Line forms upon arrival of the first person, with doors opening 30 minutes in advance.
