Expat Harem Shares Must-Read List with another Nobel Laureate
Last time was August 2007, when National Geographic Traveler listed Expat Harem as one of its four recommended reads for Istanbul visitors, alongside two titles from Turkey’s Nobel Prize winner for literature, Orhan Pamuk. We are honored this time for Expat Harem to be grouped with the memoir of Shirin Ebadi, an Iranian lawyer and activist--and first Muslim woman ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Tales from the Expat Harem and Iran Awakening are required reading for the Fall 2007 History of the Modern Middle East course at the University of California Santa Barbara.
Highly recommended by the Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies, Expat Harem is used in American and Canadian graduate, university, secondary and primary school courses ranging from art to history, Turkish language to travel writing.
