Nafisi to speak about imagination and culture

The Austin American-Statesman published an interview with Azar Nafisi yesterday. The author of Reading Lolita in Tehran offered a preview of Wednesday night's Spark event:
I want to talk about the importance of imagination to culture and the way in which it transforms our reality and our interpretation of it. I want to link that to my experiences in Iran, a society that is culturally suppressed, in order to create a form of dialogue between the two systems and cultures. There is a way literature reveals our universal aspirations.
