Literati Special - Meet the Author: The Stationery Shop

Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Location: Playroom

This will be no ordinary Literati meeting…author Marjan Kamali will revisit LabCentral! This time to join us as we delve into her most recent novel, The Stationery Shop.

Sixty years after her first love failed to meet her in a market square, Roya Khanom Archer finally has the chance to see him. But will he break her heart again?

In this skillfully plotted novel author Marjan Kamali introduces the reader to the violent upheaval leading up to the fall of Mossadegh in 1953 Iran. Against this political unrest we are introduced to a wonderful cast of characters you will immediately bond over. One would argue fate is also a major character in the novel.

“The novel’s true beauty lies in its capacity to emotionally move the reader. You cannot read this story without feeling something. I predict the book will touch a vast majority of readers in a way they did not think a novel capable.” (RoseMary Archy - Goodreads)
