About the event
The Bodleian Libraries are pleased to invite all members to this year's Friends of the Bodleian Annual Lecture, delivered by award-winning journalist and broadcaster Samira Ahmed. Drawing on her critically-acclaimed BBC4 television series, the first to be filmed in Iran for 40 years, this talk focuses on Persian art and the Bodleian's collections.
