This past March, Chicago Public Schools may have—depending on whom you ask—banned the book Persepolis from its middle schools, prompting outrage among many. The autobiographic graphic novel deals with the oppressive government of Iran in a touching way, through the eyes of a girl as she grows up. Watch the award-winning film adaptation of the movie and then discuss it with Fred Klonsky, the fiery blogger who broke the story of the book being banned. Pizza will be served, and teens are also wecome to attend.
