Shelf Talk has two tickets to An Evening with Marjane Satrapi at The Moore Theatre, this coming Monday, April 14, @ 7:30 PM. Marjane Satrapi is a critically acclaimed writer and comic artist who is best known for her film Persepolis, nominated for a 2007 Academy Award for Best Animated Film.
Satrapi does an autobiographical talk about her life. She talks about growing up in Iran and why she became a comics artist. She’s serious about her work but explains it to audiences in her amusing, funny and unique way. Her sense of humor shows through as she improvises and lets the evening dictate the program direction. It is in part political (about her life and childhood in Iran), and part of her art and where the two meet. Satrapi was a big hit when she visited Seattle two years ago for the library’s Seattle Reads program.
