Kayhan Irani’s Book Reading in London


November 20, 2013

Post by




Good friend of Parsi Khabar and a fantastic artivist, Kayhan Irani will read from her upcoming works, in London.



A narrative of migration and memory.



A young woman and her brother sail from Iran to India, via Yemen. Found on the docks of Aden, they are taken in by a local Parsi family on the eve of an anti-British uprising. As hostilities rise, public and personal boundaries are drawn; and embroidery traditions tell the tale of two communities bound by religion yet separated by culture, and the history of a people in transition.
