Essential Tales of the Silk Road 

When: Sun., Sept. 17, 3-5 p.m. 2017
Price: $10
Italo Calvino once wrote that "Signs form a language, but not the one you think you know." This is especially true of traditional stories, as each culture's folk tales speak to us in signs that we can only understand if we recognize them as they are and not as we learned to expect in other lands. "Essential Tales" present archetypal motifs and characters found throughout Central Asia -- some of them will look familiar, while others open our eyes to a world completely new.
