May 5, 2018 All Day
Come hear 32 storytellers from California, Oregon, Washington and Canada tell stories from this classic epic with roots reaching back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Jewish and Turkish folklore. The overarching frame tale of the epic is certainly relevant today – Scheherazade tells stories for 1001 nights to an angry tyrant in order to save the lives of her fellow country women… and these tales eventually heal the sultan’s insanity, bringing peace to the land. We will also feature middle Eastern dancing, food, song, music and poetry! Our evening programs are for adults and daytime events are for all ages.
Friday Evening - Stories and music start at 6:45 PM. Doors open at 6:15 PM for coffee, tea and dessert
Seattle Guild partnering with the Arab Center of Washington, the Briarcrest Neighborhood Association and a Grant from 4Culture in presenting our third and largest storytelling epic event.
