This week on A Cup of Coffee and a Good Book, Greg interviews Dr. Rahimeh Andalibian, author of The Rose Hotel. In a time when trauma and mistrust guide our understanding of the Middle East, and Iran, The Rose Hotel tells the true-life story of Rahimeh Andalibian's Iranian Muslim family and their struggle to strive after a tragedy that occurs in the bloody chaos of the 1979 Iranian Revolution. Uprooted first to London, and finally to California, the family suffers a different kind of revolution. Struggling to adjust to a new host culture in America, they soon discover that on the road to healing and redemption they must first face a past of lies and hidden truths. A clinical psychologist and intergenerational family therapist based in Laguna Beach and NYC, Dr. Rahimeh Andalibian specializes in the use of storytelling and creative performance to empower individuals and families to release themselves from the bondage of their old jointly-created stories and entrenched communication patterns to lead fulfilled lives.

This show is designed to be a supplement to the A Cup of Coffee and a Good Book book review blog and Walker Author Tours.
