In November 1963, a bright Hawaiian morning is shattered by news of the assassination of the President. This marks the beginning of a journey to a remote Iranian village where a young American Peace Corps Volunteer sets out with rebellious tenacity to do what is right, unaware of America's loss of innocence-and his own. From a youthful determination to perpetuate Kennedy's legacy, to coping with the reality of America's faults and ambitions, to grappling with unfamiliar customs and languages, to discovering the friendship and love of Iranians, Tom Klobe discovers that being "Tom of Iran" is as fulfilling as being "American Tom."

Author Biography

As a Peace Corps Volunteer in Iran, Tom Klobe learned the persuasive qualities of quiet leadership that enlightened his 29-year career as Director of the University of Hawaii Art Gallery. He organized and designed over 200 exhibitions, five of which received the prestigious Print Casebooks: Best in Exhibition Design award. His book "Exhibitions: Concept, Planning and Design" was published by the American Association of Museums Press in 2012. He has authored or edited over 35 publications. Klobe was named a Living Treasure of Hawaii in 2005 and was the recipient of the University of Hawaii Robert W. Clopton Award for Distinguished Community Service in 2003. In 1999 he was honored by the Republic of France as a Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres for his contributions to the arts in France and Hawaii.
