Join Medea Benjamin to discuss her brand new book Inside Iran; the Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic with a special introduction by Robert Scheer. The book tackles the contradictions in Iran’s system of government, traces the history of its stormy relationship with the United States, and presents a realistic and hopeful case for the two nations’ future. And with President Trump’s threats of war, this conversation could not be more important!
*Tickets: $10 entry | $25 with a signed copy of the book
