    Distinguished Lecture Series: Firoozeh Dumas | A Year of the Arts ev ent

    Union Wisconsin Room

    Advance tickets at the UWM Bookstore:

    $12 – UWM staff, faculty and alumni
    $14 – general public

    A sign language interpreter will be provided.
    A reception a nd book signing will follow the lecture.

    Mining her rich P ersian heritage with dry wit and a bold spirit, Firoozeh Dumas puts her own unique mark on the themes of family, community and tradition in the bestse ller, Funny in Farsi: A Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America . The colle ction of stories makes light of culture clashes and translation snafus, usi ng humor to remind us that our commonalities far outweigh our differences. < br>
    Dumas’ talk is presented in partnership with UWM’s inaugura l First-Year Common Reading Experience of Persepolis , a memoir in graphic novel form, by Iranian novelist Marjane Satrapi. Both writers experienced t he Iranian Revolution as young girls and strive to “shed light on the human side of Iran, the one not covered in the evening news.” The poignant and op timistic perspectives of their youth compel readers to draw the delicate con nection between humor and suffering, laughter and tears, and to appreciate “our shared humanity.”

    Funny in Farsi was on the San Fran cisco Chronicle and LA Times bestseller lists and was a finalist in 2005 for an Audie Award for best audio book. (It lost to Bob Dylan.) Dumas was also a finalist for the prestigious Thurber Prize for American Humor, the first Middle Eastern woman ever to receive this honor. (She lost to Jon Stewart.) The Persian version of Funny in Farsi is currently one of the bestselling bo oks in Iran. Dumas is a contributor to NPR, the New York Times, LA Times, Wall Street Journal and other publications.
