Each year the literary organization Centre County Reads encourages members of the community to read the same book and discuss it with their neighbors. This year Centre County Reads selected the graphic novel Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi for the community-wide read. The book, which also doubles as Strapi's autobiography, tells the tale of a young girl's life under the Islamic Revolution in Iran.
