In a rebroadcast from Dec. 14, 2014, Daniel talks with Azar Nafisi, bestselling author of "Reading Lolita in Tehran." Her latest book is "The Republic of Imagination: America in Three Books." The three books referenced in this nonfiction work each describe the very American traits of nonconformity and individuality. In this interview Nafisi explains why reading, writing, and imagination can unify and transport us - regardless of station, ethnicity, and income - to other worlds, and why this "republic of imagination" is made up of a community of readers.
