Adaptations Book Club: Persepolis

2007, Rated PG-13, 95 min. Directed by Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud.

A graphic novel which sits beside Maus and American Born Chinese on the high shelf labeled “Important Drawn Biographical Tales,” Persepolis went from esteemed literature to film in 2007. Author Marjane Satrapi’s story of youthful rebellion, resilience in the face of oppression, and the teetering balance between loving and critiquing the culture you grew up in continues its relevance well into the 2020s. We Luv Video invites fans and new readers alike to join this discussion and watch party – with a special discount on the graphic novel if purchased through the Adaptations Book Club’s Bookshop.org page. – James Scott Read a full review of Persepolis.
