About the Event

Iran:  The History, Not the Headlines – Jennifer Craig

Despite the glimmers of hope we now hear about the recent protests in Iran, most of what we read in the papers about that country is negative.  Yet, as we all know, there is often a disconnect between the people in power and the population at large.  Jennifer will take us on her 2016 countrywide trip to this fascinating country that was once Persia, reminding us of their storied history, represented in art and architecture, and sharing her experience of feeling welcome and intrigued by the similarities and differences between Persian and western culture.  We will visit the cities of Tabriz and Tehran in the north; Kerman, Shiraz, and other small sites in the south; and end our travels in beautiful Isfahan, seat of the Safavid Dynasty.
