    The Art of Storytelling with Shahrnush Parsipur

    Bay Area - San Francisco Saturday - December 13, 2008     02:00 PM

    Salaam Bar Hamegy,This is just a reminder that Zanan next gathering is this Saturday, December 13 in Berkeley. Please reply to me only jamilehpeace@ yahoo.comby Friday December 12, if you are planning to attend. Thanks.************ ********* ********* ********* ********* ********* ********* *****We have all heard about the "One thousand and one nights", and the power of storytelling. Shahrzad saves her life night after night by beginning to tell a story to Shahryar but not finishing it. Shahryar eager to hear the conclusion, postpones her execution one more night. So it goes on for One thousand and one nights! Storytelling has existed as long as humanity has had language and it is a fascinating form of art. Though everyone can tell a story, a good storyteller can visualize and transfer the images in the mind's eyes by vocal and bodily gestures to the audience. But, with the technology advancement, books, ebooks, TV, etc, is the storytelling vanishing or, are there elements of this ancient art form, continuing today? To open the discussion, I have invited a very dear guest, Shahrnush Parsipur (http//:www.shahrnushparsip htm).
    Shahrnush doesn't need an introduction. Many of you have read her masterpieces; "Tuba" and "Women Without Men". She was the first recipient of the International Writer's Project Fellowship from Brown University. Shahrnush will talk about "storytelling" versus "story writing". After discussion, those who are interested can tell a story. So, think about a story you like. WHEN: Saturday December 13
