Page 158 Books is excited to welcome Suzi Ehtesham-Zadeh to discuss her short story collection, Zan--out June 11th. Suzi will be in conversation with her daughter Asia Meana, a PhD candidate at the University of Georgia.

In prose that is both unflinching and lyrical, Suzi Ehtesham-Zadeh presents Zan, a collection of stories that provide a deep and nuanced view of contemporary Iranian women as they navigate a crucial moment in their nation’s history.

Suzi Ehtesham-Zadeh was born in Washington, D.C. to an Iranian father and an American mother. She moved to Iran at age 5 and grew up in Tehran under the Shah. She returned to the U.S. to attend Stanford University, and when the Islamic Revolution started brewing shortly after she graduated, she moved back to Iran and plopped herself down in it.
