Event Description

Kurdish Dinner followed by a performance by Diane Edgecomb of A Fire in My Heart: A Storyteller's Journey Among the Kurds.This entertaining and insightful performance charts her years collecting the vanishing folkloric tales of the Kurdish people. This seven-year quest brought Diane to remote mountain villages in Turkey places usually forbidden to outsiders. Edgecomb will share legends from her new book, A Fire In My Heart: Kurdish Tales, never before published stories that reveal the folkloric riches of this ancient Middle Eastern culture along with anecdotes of her travels up sheer mountain roads to record the last Kurdish storytellers. The performance resonates with the humor and pathos of Kurdish village life and the colorful people that shared their lives with her.
