About the evening: Diane is from Boston and has been to Kurdistan a number of times, studied their culture and made friends with the people. She is the first to publish a book in English about the Kurds and the stories they have to tell. Cathryn has been to Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan and will tell Turkemenistan stories from their most famous bard, Dede Korkut. Diane will be sharing new Kurdish folk and fairy tales never before translated or told in English.
