While gathering the vanishing folkloric tales of the Kurdish people Diane embarked on a seven-year quest, traveling to remote mountain villages in Turkey, places usually forbidden to outsiders. Diane tells the dramatic story of this life-changing journey and, along with legends from her book, A Fire In My Heart: Kurdish Tales, of the people who shared their lives and their stories with her.
“We LOVED!!! Diane’s performance! We were able to not only honor International Womens Day, but the Kurdish New Year and World Anti-Racism Day as well. It was an amazing synergy.” – Intercultural Center Coordinator, Johnson & Wales University
