Adib Khorram will appear In Conversation for his Young Adult Debut Novel ~ Darius the Great Is Not Okay

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Adib Khorram will Celebrate the Publication of his Debut Young Adult (YA) Hardcover Novel Darius the Great Is Not Okayand be In Conversation about his New Book with Megan Bannen, Local Author of the Young Adult (YA) Hardcover The Bird and the Blade.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Adib Khorram is an Author, a Graphic Designer, and a Tea Enthusiast.  If he's not writing (or at his day job), you can probably find him trying to get his 100 yard Freestyle (SCY) under a minute, or learning to do a Lutz Jump.  He lives in Kansas City, Missouri.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Darius doesn't think he'll ever be enough, in America or in Iran.  Hilarious and heartbreaking, this unforgettable debut introduces a brilliant new voice in contemporary YA.

"Heartfelt, tender, and so utterly real. I'd live in this book forever if I could." ~ Becky Albertalli, Award-Winning Author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Darius Kellner speaks better Klingon than Farsi, and he knows more about Hobbit social cues than Persian ones.  He's a Fractional Persian--half, his mom's side--and his first-ever trip to Iran is about to change his life.  Darius has never really fit in at home, and he's sure things are going to be the same in Iran.  His clinical depression doesn't exactly help matters, and trying to explain his medication to his grandparents only makes things harder.

Then Darius meets Sohrab, the boy next door, and everything changes.  Soon, they're spending their days together, playing soccer, eating faludeh, and talking for hours on a secret rooftop overlooking the city's skyline.  Sohrab calls him Darioush--the original Persian version of his name--and Darius has never felt more like himself than he does now that he's Darioush to Sohrab.

Adib Khorram's brilliant debut is for anyone who's ever felt not good enough--then met a friend who makes them feel so much better than okay.
