Talking Volumes: Azar Nafisi
The Loft Literary Center, Wednesday, November 5 at 7pm
Talking Volumes, Minnesota's nationally acclaimed regional book club, spotlights current books and their authors in Star Tribune articles, author appearances at Saint Paul's Fitzgerald Theater, and Minnesota Public Radio broadcasts. Talking Volumes is a partnership of the Star Tribune and MPR in collaboration with The Loft Literary Center.

About The Republic of Imagination: America in Three Books: Ten years ago, Azar Nafisi electrified readers with her million-copy bestseller, Reading Lolita in Tehran, which told the story of how, against the backdrop of morality squads and executions, she taught The Great Gatsby and other classics to her eager students in Iran. In this exhilarating followup, Nafisi has written the book her fans have been waiting for: an impassioned, beguiling, and utterly original tribute to the vital importance of fiction in a democratic society. What Reading Lolita in Tehran was for Iran, The Republic of Imagination is for America.

Taking her cue from a challenge thrown to her in Seattle, where a skeptical reader told her that Americans don’t care about books the way they did back in Iran, she energetically responds to those who say fiction has nothing to teach us. Blending memoir and polemic with close readings of her favorite American novels—The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Babbitt, and The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, among others—she invites us to join her as citizens of her “Republic of Imagination,” a country where the villains are conformity and orthodoxy and the only passport to entry is a free mind and a willingness to dream.

Azar Nafisi, born in Iran, has become one of the world’s leading voices on the political implications of literature and culture. Her memoir, Reading Lolita in Tehran, published 10 years ago, became a critically acclaimed bestseller. It depicted life in Iran as the Islamic revolution swept the country, threatening intellectual and artistic freedoms. She teaches at Johns Hopkins University and lives in Washington, D.C.

Season ticket packages go on sale July 22.

Single show tickets go on sale to the general public in August. Single tickets will be $25.00 for the public and $23.00 for MPR members, members of the Star Tribune Talking Volumes Club and The Loft Literary Center. Call the Minnesota Public Radio box office at 651-290-1200 or visit online at http://fitzgeraldtheater.publicradio.org for more information. (The_Loft_Library)

    Talking Volumes: Karen Armstrong
    The Loft Literary Center, Tuesday, November 11 at 7pm
    Talking Volumes, Minnesota's nationally acclaimed regional book club, spotlights current books and their authors in Star Tribune articles, author appearances at Saint Paul's Fitzgerald Theater, and Minnesota Public Radio broadcasts. Talking Volumes is a partnership of the Star Tribune and MPR in collaboration with The Loft Literary Center.

    About Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence: For the first time in American history, religious self-identification is on the decline. Some have cited a perception that began to grow after September 11, 2001—that faith in general is a source of aggression, intolerance, and divisiveness, something bad for society. But how accurate is that view? And does it apply equally to all faiths? In these troubled times, we risk basing decisions of real and dangerous consequence on mistaken understandings of the faiths around us, in our immediate community as well as globally. And so, with her deep learning and sympathetic understanding, Karen Armstrong examines the impulse toward violence in each of the world's great religions. The comparative approach is new: while there have been plenty of books on jihad or the Crusades, for example this one lays the Christian and the Islamic way of war side by side, along with those of Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, Daoism, and Judaism.

    Karen Armstrong is the author of numerous books on religion, including The Case for God, A History of God, The Battle for God, Holy War, Islam, Buddha, and The Great Transformation--as well as a memoir, The Spiral Staircase. Her work has been translated into forty-five languages. In 2008 she was awarded the TED Prize and began working with TED on the Charter for Compassion, created online by the general public, crafted by leading thinkers in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism. It was launched globally in the fall of 2009. Also in 2008, she was awarded the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Medal. And in 2013, she received the British Academy’s inaugural al-Rodhan Award for improving Transcultural Understanding.

    Season ticket packages go on sale July 22.

    Single show tickets go on sale to the general public in August.
