EverydayScribe now has a Book Discussion Series. I hope you read the first of the series which featured The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi.
I selected The Complete Persepolis as the first book of the series for two reasons. It was my introduction to a new genre of literature, so I thought it would be perfect as the introductory book for this series. As one of the most challenged books, this selection continues the theme of Banned Books Week. A week devoted to promoting our right to read and protecting our intellectual freedom. Though the week is over, it is a battle fought all year.
This series will be more than a traditional book review. Posts in this series will provide an honest review and offer discussion points. These points might include observations about the content, connections to other works, and/or questions to help facilitate a deeper reading. The questions and observations I provide will be completely spoiler-free.
You can count on at least one Book Discussion per month. I would love to hear any suggestions you have for future posts!
