World Wide Wednesday: Iran & Persian Culture, with Farshid Soltanshahi, Julia Thornburg and Sara Garrow
Free, all ages, 7 p.m., amanda@thecommonspace.org
Attendance: 75 people

Our series bringing locales from elsewhere in the world home to St. Louis seems especially relevant this month, with Iran being much in the news of late due to current world events. Come join us for an evening of music (courtesy of Farshid Soltanshahi, of Farshid Etniko), Persian art (by St. Louis artist Julia Thornburg) and discussion (led by Iranian native Sara Garrow), to learn more about this amazingly rich culture and how the current political climate affects some Iranian-born St. Louisans. You're bound to learn a thing or two, and have a good time, to boot.
