A British-Iranian national who spent six years in jail in Iran is writing a memoir about her experience.
The Guardian reports that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's book is untitled, as of yet, but will come out in fall 2023.
Zaghari-Ratcliffe went to visit her parents in Tehran in 2016 and, upon trying to board a flight back to the United Kingdom with her daughter, was arrested.
The child wasn't imprisoned, but Zaghari-Ratcliffe was, under accusations of being a spy, and was only freed this past March.
She said that her "story as a hostage is unique, but it is also the story of many other women in Iran in prison who are unknown but have helped me enormously to go through this journey and come out of it stronger."
