About The Author


E. S. Zameen was first introduced to Persian culture when she met her future husband, a native of Tehran, Iran. She found it to be a warm and generous culture. After marriage, they became the parents of four children.

When their oldest child first entered elementary school, Mrs. Zameen began giving classroom presentations explaining Persian New Year. She felt the need to find a book about No Rouz to leave with the teachers that would reinforce her presentation. Surprisingly, very little was available; so she decided to write one herself. No Rouz: Our Persian New Year is the happy result.

Presently, the Mrs. Zameen and her family clean the house, grow sabzi, jump the fire, give Ay Dee and go picnicking, all next to the mountains of Southern Utah. They have celebrated No Rouz each spring for over twenty years.
