We are proud to bring you Jacqueline Saper, esteemed author, to be up close and personal with you via Zoom. In her award-winning memoir From Miniskirt to Hijab, Jacqueline Saper explains how she went, almost overnight, from a life of wearing miniskirts to high school parties, to listening to fanatic diatribes, being forced to wear the hijab, and hiding in her basement as Iraqi bombs fell over her city.

Saper is one of very few Persian Jews of her generation to have lived before, during and after the revolution in Iran. She was the only bicultural Jewish girl in Tehran, and probably in the whole of Iran at the time.
