Offsite: Jason Rezaian at Mendelssohn Theatre

Literati is honored to be partnering with the Wallace House of the University of Michigan as they welcome Jason Rezaian at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre

n July 2014, Washington Post journalist, Jason Rezaian was arrested by Iranian police on charges of espionage. What followed was a harrowing 544 day stint in an Iranian prison, and an extraordinary campaign led by his family, the Washington Post, and prominent journalism organizations, for his release. Join Rezaian for a discussion on his book Prisoner which details his 18-month imprisonment in a maximum security facility, his journey through the Iranian legal system and how his release became part of the Iran nuclear deal.

Jason Rezaian is a contributor to CNN and  a writer for Global Opinions at the Washington Post. He served as the paper’s correspondent in Tehran from 2012 to 2016. Born and raised in Marin Country, California, Rezaian is a graduate of Eugene Lang College, New School University.
