October 8, 2009, Beverly Hills, CA -
On October 18th, Academy Award winning actor Sidney Poitier will be introducing Angella Nazarian and her new book, Life as a Visitor at the Beverly Hills Civic Center Plaza. The theme of the event centers around the subject of Nazarian’s recently released book- a look at the universal journey we face in finding our sense of “home” in our community and within ourselves.
Life as a Visitor chronicles Nazarian’s difficult and triumphant journey from Iran to Beverly Hills after the Iranian Revolution of 1979. Nazarian gives readers an intimate and inside look at what life is like for an immigrant caught between two cultures, and inspires readers to reflect upon the influences which shape us.
Books may be purchased at the event and Ms. Nazarian will be available for signing after the program.
