Davisites can learn more about Iran’s role in evolving developments in the Middle East by hearing Trista Parsi at a book-signing from 4 to 5 p.m. Friday at The Avid Reader. The bookstore is at 617 Second St. in downtown Davis.

Parsi, who is president of the National Iranian American Council, will talk about Iran’s geopolitical expansion in light of American policy under President Obama when he presents his book, “A Single Roll of the Dice: Obama’s Diplomacy with Iran.” He also is the author of “Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran and the United States.”

To read an excerpt from “A Single Roll of the Dice” published in The Atlantic magazine, visit http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/01/the-story-of-how-and-why-us-iran-diplomacy-keeps-failing/251853/.

Parsi’s visit is co-sponsored by the Center for International Trade Development, the state of California and friends of Senses, which is “a cultural organization dedicated to creating a more peaceful and healthier environment for all by fostering understanding through the sharing of arts and ideas across the globe.”
