As well as my readalike article talking about the appeal of MarjaneSatrapi with a list of 5 authors who are similar and why, NoveList also has a book discussion guide on Satrapi'sPersepolisready to go up any day. It is the database's first book discussion guide for a graphic novel!
I have been trying to get my group to read Persepolis for years, maybe now they will be more willing. In the meantime, these 2 new additions to the wonderful offerings already available on NoveList (accessible from most public library websites or in person) should help a lot of readers.
