Book Club: Désorientale

Grand Débutant

Join Bhavana on Wednesday, September 28 at 7:30pm (CST) for a discussion on Désorientale by Négar Djavadi.

Disoriental is the first novel of Négar Djavadi, a screenwriter based in Paris.
In this sophisticated debut, Kimiâa, a French-Iranian woman tells the story of her home country’s violent history and her family’s escape to Paris.
The title of the book – a combination of the words “désorienter” and “oriental” – beautifully encompasses not just the experience of the narrator throughout her life across geographies, eras, and identities but also what Djavadi seems to have envisioned for her readers’ experience of the book. The captivating story of a girl who grows into a woman dealing with the burdens of history on her country, her family, and herself, Disoriental offers so much to both non-Iranian and Iranian readers.Open to all levels. You have the choice to read the book in French* or in its English translation.

This event is held online and you will receive a Zoom link on the week of the event. Discussion will be a mix of French and English, with each participant using French as much as they are comfortable.
