Plus: Growing up black and affluent in LA: JENNIFER BASZILE remembers the seventies in Palos Verdes – she was the first black female professor in the Yale history department, and her powerful and beautifully written new book is The Black Girl Next Door.
Also: Growing up in Iran in the eighties: AZAR NAFISI was expelled from the University of Tehran in 1981 after refusing to wear the veil. She went on to write the best-seller Reading Lolita in Tehran, and now she has a new memoir out: Things I’ve been Silent About. Azar Nafasi will be speaking tonight/Wed. in the downtown LA Public Library ALOUD series at 700pm – 5th and Flower streets.
