WHY GO? Laguna Beach Books welcomes Aria Minu-Sepehr, author of We Heard the Heavens Then: A Memoir of Iran. "Minu-Sepehr was raised in Iran in a world of privilege, as the son of a major general in the Shah’s Imperial Iranian Air Force. The author details his own life from two voices: From the young boy who grew up fast as his idyllic life became a constant fear the militia would invade his home, to the adult he has become today, shaped by his past. Minu-Sepehr details the country’s revolution through the lens of his own life, telling his stories from two perspectives and blending them throughout the book. He moved from Iran to the United States in 1979 and still lives stateside in Oregon with his wife and two daughters." For more information, CLICK HERE.
