Influenced by the wisdom of Rumi philosophy and the modern seeking of self-discovery, Elnaz Moghangard makes her author debut with the coming-of-age novel, ROYA. On Saturday afternoon, March 14th we invite you to meet Elnaz for a book signing at Phoenix & Dragon Bookstore where she will read an excerpt and share the inspiration behind the story.
ROYA follows the story of a 22-year-old Iranian-American woman confronting the shadows of her past in search of lion-hearted strength. Pressured to trade her dream of becoming a composer for medical school, she is at odds with her immigrant parents. A heartbreak over her first love has left her further feeling like an expat in her own body. Upon her grandmother’s request, she embarks on a reluctant journey to Iran. There, she finds a country with its own torn identity ––one caught between tradition and modernity. A quiet, yet pressing craving for freedom exists mirroring Roya's own inner battle. With the help of some unlikely friends, she finds truth in the unraveling of family secrets and a new dawn for dreams.
