Curious about Iran? Please join me at noon on Tuesday, April 13 for our Brown Bag Lunch at the East Lake Public Library, 2727 E. Lake St., Minneapolis, with freelance journalist Laura Secor, presented by special arrangement with the Walker Art Center.
Laura Secor has covered Iranian culture and politics, including last year’s contentious presidential election, for the New Yorker, the New York Times, and other publications. Her work reaches beyond sound bites and pundits to connect with everyday individuals in Iran as they struggle to be understood outside their country.
Secor is a former staff editor of the New York Times op-ed page; before that, she was a reporter for the Boston Globe, acting executive editor of The American Prospect, and a senior editor and writer for Lingua Franca. Her book on Iran’s democracy movement will be published by Henry Holt & Co. in 2011.
Laura will also deliver the Mack Lecture at the Walker Art at 8 p.m. that evening. For more information about her Walker appearance, click here. (http://calendar.walkerart.org/event.wac?id=5528)
