See & Do: Time for Real Diplomacy



Despite the U.S. intelligence establishment's report stating Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons, the Bush administration continues to bang its Iranian war drum. The national speaking tour TIME FOR REAL DIPLOMACY: THE FOLLY OF ATTACKING IRAN, in Atlanta Fri., FEB. 22, is an attempt at counter-rhythm by two authors who warn that war with Iran would be disastrous for both nations. Professor Fatemeh Keshavarz is the author of Jasmine and Stars: Reading More than Lolita in Tehran, a book that mocks the stereotypes depicted in best seller Reading Lolita in Tehran. Former New York Times correspondent Stephen Kinzer is the author of All the Shah's Men, about how the U.S. overthrow of Iran's first real democratic government in 1953 continues to haunt both nations. Free. Reception: 6:30 p.m. Lecture: 7:30 p.m. Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta, 1911 Cliff Valley Way. 404-634-5134.
