Marlon James, left, Marjane Satrapi, and Jonathan Franzen are among the writers and artists visiting campus this year in the Leslie Center for the Humanities’ speaker series.

Iranian-born graphic novelist and filmmaker Marjane Satrapi, the author of Persepolis, will be on campus Oct. 6 to give a public talk at 4 p.m. in 105 Dartmouth Hall. She will meet with students in Occom Commons immediately afterward.

Satrapi’s talk kicks off a series of literary and artistic visits sponsored by the Leslie Center for the Humanities. “We are dedicated to bringing in voices from a diversity of cultures, from within and without the United Sates,” says Graziella Parati, the center’s director.
