"Dr. Fariba Hachtroudi, Iranian author and journalist, will speak about Iranian civil society at La Maison Française, Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 7:30 p.m.

Living in France, Ms. Hachtroudi — a determined political and humanitarian advocate — returned to Iran to discover for herself the authentic story behind the political and religious contradictions widely echoed by observers, media, and writers.

Dr. Hachtroudi will share with the audience her observations, her hopes, and her fears for the future of Iran — a future with a global impact far beyond the Middle East region. Free, but reservations are required."
