Author Event: Roya Hakakian ~ Assassins of the Turquoise Palace on 1/5/12


Author Roya Hakakian will be presenting her non-fiction book Assassins of the Turquoise Palace at the Henry Carter Hull Library on Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 6:30 pm. Assassins of the Turquoise Palace is about Iran's extrajudicial assassination campaigns against exiles in Germany and the case which brought it to a halt.

Hakakian's book explores the assassinations and the implications of Iran, their fallout, and the subsequent court case known as the Mykonos trial that became one of the most high profile cases in Europe that ended implicating the highest level of Iranian government.

Awarded a 2008 Guggenheim fellowship in non-fiction, Hakakian’s book was a New York Times Sunday Book Review editors choice, a Daily Beast-Newsweek Not To Be Missed Book of 2011, and a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
