Guest Lecture at UT Dortmund “Love and Pomegranates: An American Author’s Creative Interaction With Iran”

I’ve been invited by Professor Walter Greunzweig of UT Dortmund in Germany to speak to American Studies studies students about my experiences in Iran and publishing novels and nonfiction set in the Middle East. The title of my Guest Lecture today is “Love and Pomegranates: An American Author’s Creative Interaction With Iran.”

UT Dortmund and the University of Iowa participate in an exchange program with each other, making it easier for students to spend a semester abroad.

I had a chance to snap some photos before the lecture:
