Peace & the Spoken Word
Stories can be central to peacemaking. Brief narrative readings—all spoken aloud—will present the ideas and experiences of great thinkers and writers on equity, dispelling conflict, and making peace. During these participatory readings, audience members will be invited to read out selected passages. Come share an encounter with powerful and compassionate ideas that are relevant for our times. Four events: Sept. 18, 22, 24, 25. Attend any or all.
IV. Women and Voices from Partition of the Indian Subcontinent
The violent division of the subcontinent into India and Pakistan in 1947, which uprooted millions of people, has been recorded in history, literature and cinema. We will read excerpts from Amrita Pritam and other women writers on the partition and its effect on women’s lives. In addition, we will hear other accounts of the region—among them accounts of Dr, Howard Thurman’s meeting with Gandhi and Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s life in India and New York.
