Book Night: Roxana Saberi, Between Two Worlds
Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi will discuss her book, Between Two Worlds, with Roger Cohen at the Times Center in New York.
On January 31, 2009, Saberi was dragged from her home in Iran, arrested and accused of espionage. After a sham trial, she was sentenced to eight years in an Iranian prison, but following broad-based international pressure, Saberi was released on appeal.
The 32-year-old Saberi had been working as a journalist in Iran since 2003. With a profoundly unique perspective, Saberi’s book offers a rich, dramatic and illuminating portrain of Iran as it undergoes a striking transformation.
Her book goes on sale March 30.
