Dina Nayeri presents her book
A Teaspoon of Earth and Sea
in the Amerikazentrum Hamburg
Am Sandtorkai 48
16th October 2013, 7 pm.
American-Iran writer Dina Nayeri reads extracts and talks about her work A Teaspoon of Earth and Sea (Mareverlag) which is a magical novel about a young Iranian woman lifted from grief by her powerful imagination and love of Western culture.
The story of Saba is made complex and fascinating by introducing numerous opposing multicultural and narrative elements. Life in Iran after the Revolution threatens almost everything that Saba and her family value most in their lives. They realize that they must flee to the West, but that is extremely risky and difficult. If they stay, they risk being exposed as converts, a crime punishable by death.
Nayeri´s debut novel, released in 2013 was translated to 13 foreign languages. A Teaspoon of Earth and Sea was selected as a Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers book.
Dina Nayeri holds an MBA and a Master of Education, both from Harvard, and a BA from Princeton. She has worked in high fashion, management consulting, university admissions, investment banking, and once as a grumpy lifeguard.
