The Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with New York Times bestselling author Azar Nafisi, who will discuss her latest book, Read Dangerously: The Subversive Power of Literature in Troubled Times. Structured as a series of letters to her father, who taught her as a child about how literature can rescue us in times of trauma, Nafisi explores the most probing questions of our time through the works of Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, James Baldwin, Margaret Atwood, and more.
