Misty | 1505 comments I highly recommend both Persepolis and Anahita's Woven Riddle.

Annette (blooboo7) Yes, Persepolis is an amazing graphic novel. Anahita's Woven Riddle is another great story, involving a girl who chooses her husband by weaving a riddle into her tapestry.

Words in the Dust is a new book by Trent Reedy, which I am looking forward to reading. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/84...

Bernadette (bernadettesimpson) The article is from 2008 and I just wonder if Goodreads is still blocked, or perhaps re-blocked? I have friends on here from Iran and we were in contact a lot over the past two years. I haven't heard from them in awhile though...

Extraordinary Women from the Muslim World includes story of Shirin Ebadi from Iran, a Nobel Peace Prize Winner.
