Nasreen Pejvack at the Confederation Centre Public Library Saturday April 21

Nasreen  Pejvack will be visiting Confederation Centre Public Library Saturday April 21, 2:00 p.m. as part of a cross country tour introducing her newest books, “Paradise of the Downcasts” and “Waiting.”

“Paradise of the Downcasts” is a book of short stories inspired by the author’s experiences of life in Canada, a gracefully crafted series of stories in which the author invites us to examine the way we deal with each other in life’s sojourn. “Waiting” is a book of poems that delve deeply into the soul of humanity to pull out wonder, greed, love and hope.

Born in Tehran, Iran, a place she left over 30 years ago, the author has lived in Athens, Ottawa, California, before finally settling in Vancouver.  She previously visited Confederation Centre Public Library in 2015 when she launched her first novel, “Amity.”
