Presentations & Lectures


Join the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library and the Kamloops Society for the Written Arts as we welcome Penticton author Mehrnaz Massoudi.

Mehrnaz’s memoir, Never without Love (2019), is a profoundly revealing narrative of her own life as an Iranian woman who escaped her beloved, war-torn homeland to find peace in Canada.

About the book

Never Without Love is a story about an Iranian born woman—formed by flame, tradition, war, and revolution—whose beauty and romantic spirit could not be suppressed regardless of a severely scarred body and other external adversities. The narrator deftly handles a minefield of politics, from the regime of the Shah to the foreign interests of British and Americans, to street marches and protests, to the installation of the Ayatollah Khomeini and the Islamic Republic. Mehrnaz takes her readers through a labyrinth of being guided by many spiritual teachers including her Sufi great aunt and the Sufi poets: Hafiz and Rumi. At the centre of the labyrinth, she finds the Love she has sought.
This event will be streamed live on the library’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC94ibwlubLPnPffj4dWI2zg.

No registration is required, however if you would like to join the event via Zoom or teleconference please register at tnrl.ca.
