Enjoy an evening of stories, song, and lovely surprises, transporting you to Iran and back to America and illuminating the struggles of Persian Jewish women. Presented in conjunction with Light and Shadows, “Saffron and Rosewater” features dramatic readings from the beautiful writings of Gina Nahai, Angella Nazarian (pictured second), Farideh Goldin, Dora Levy Mossanen (pictured first) and Esther Amini, many of whom will be in attendance for a talkback session. Niki Black (pictured third) performs classical Persian songs. The program concludes with a hosted reception.
