Friday Reads: History

Happy Friday, lovely librarians! Today’s #FridayReads delve into Russian and Iranian history via fiction and fact:

THE IMPERIAL WIFE by Irina Reyn
“The Russians are coming in this ingeniously structured novel that travels between a present-day art specialist handling the biggest sale of her career and the 18th-century court life of the woman who becomes Catherine the Great.” — O Magazine

THE FALL OF HEAVEN: The Pahlavis and the Final Days of Imperial Iran by Andrew Scott Cooper
An immersive, gripping account of the rise and fall of Iran’s glamorous Pahlavi dynasty, written with the cooperation of the late Shah’s widow, Empress Farah. “A well-researched and fascinating book for readers interested in the history of Iran and the Middle East, current Iranian affairs, and the history of fundamentalist terrorism.” — Library Journal
