The Iranian revolution seems as though it took place eons ago, but it's only been twenty years. Nevertheless the word Iran or Iranian still elicits anxiety in many an American. Imagine what it must be like for Iranians who moved to this nation from their homeland. Any adjustment is far from easy when one is cut off from a familiar language, history, and geography. Find out about the struggles of Iranians in America firsthand when Tara Kai, a contributor to A World Between (an anthology of essays, poems, and stories edited by Persis M. Karim and Mohammad Mehdi Khorrami) shares her perspective on how Iranian immigrants persevere in the United States tonight at 8:00 at Books & Books, 296 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables. Admission is free. Call 305-442-4408. (
