This year I have done more “Haft seen” preparations than ever before. First I bought one for Café Lily (they are doing a great public event on March 22 to celebrate the Persian New Year with my book.) Then I had to do a sabzeh for the International Women’s Society and I also sent a small display to the good people of KPBS to put in their lobby. But I worked the hardest on what is now on display in a glass case at the San Diego Central Library. It took time because every item had to be nonperishable. I’m pleased with how it turned out and hope you’ll have a chance to visit.
So if you are in the area, I hope you’ll stop by, enjoy the Now Ruz display and take home a copy of the information pamphlet. Then again, if you are a San Diegan, you should make a habit of supporting your library, anyway. This home of knowledge is the only place where, regardless of our economy, you don’t have to spend a fortune to walk away with treasures!
