If you are involved with a reading group and would like up to 10 copies of Perspolis for your group, give me a heads up. Now that our program is over, we have more copies than we need. They are housed at Schlow Library, so email me if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Of course, books at the libraries are always free (as long as you get them back on time ;-)
