The fourth annual "Big Read" is on, here, and the book is Funny in Farsi, by Firoozeh Dumas.  Its sub-title is "A Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America".  The author will be coming to town in early May, for a couple of events.  Before then, a whole series of disucssion meetings will be going on at libraries, book stores, the Art Institute, and a Starbucks.

Previous Big Read books were: Nickel and Dimed, by Barbara Ehrenreich; To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee; and The Glass Castle, by Jeanne Wall.
