A sister and her brother share with classmates their Norooz (New Year) experiences. They live in Yazd, Iran, the city of beautiful wind catchers. They talk about spring cleaning, carpet washing, chaarshanbeh soori, preparing the Haft-Seen, plus other activities during this festive time of year. They reveal why people say, "Norooz Peerooz! [Wishing you a victorious Norooz!], and King Jamsheed's association with Norooz, the start of spring! They also learn about the Zoroastrian roots of Haft-Seen. This illustrated book is written in poetry.

Iranian-Americans are a nascent diaspora, most of us having immigrated only in the past four decades. We are coming to our own, lifting our heads from the business grindstone and beginning to establish ourselves in other realms of diaspora influence and acceptance such as politics, philanthropy and culture. By doing so, we are promoting our beautiful arts and culture by sharing our rituals and festivals. The most uniting, revered and unanimous of these is Persian New Year or Norooz. -Noosheen Hashemi 02/23/16
