Presentations on writing and art in Iran’s history will mark the UNC Library’s fourth celebration of Persian collections on March 21.
The program again coincides with Nowruz, the Persian New Year that is a traditional time of joy and a celebration of the coming of spring.
Come enjoy Iranian music and Persian cookies and tea, and view recent additions to the Persian Studies collections. Also hear from Dr. Sepideh Saeedi-Arcangeli on “Ancient Scripts of Iran from Prehistory until the Entrance of Islam,” and from UNC graduate students Lyla Halsted and Patrick Dsilva on “Ismail and Ali: Exhibiting Multilayered Persian Paintings at the Ackland.”
