One Book, One Philadelphia launches today, featuring the Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi.

The Event Kick-Off is tonight at the Central Library, 7:30 pm. Head out for Persian Music by Intercultural Journeys and a screening of the film, Persepolis.

And if you can’t make it to the library tonight, come to our March program, Warning: Graphic Content, where three graphic memoirists will discuss their work and we’ll show Persepolis.

The Johnny Showcase and Lefty Lucy Cabaret
