Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Location: University of Washington/Astronomy Auditorium

This is the first session from a series on reading and studying the stories of Shahnameh. This session covers the story of Feraydun, one of the iconic characters of Shahnameh. We will go through his life’s journey from saving Iran from the evil king, Zahhak to mourning the death of his children. This event will be in Persian to maximize the joy of audience from the beauty of Ferdowsi’s language.
Afshin Sepehri, the producer of Shahnameh Audio Book will be the narrator of this session.

این اولین جلسه از سلسله جلسات شاهنامه‌خوانی خواهد بود. در این جلسات به خواندن و بحث درباره داستانهای مختلف شاهنامه خواهیم پرداخت. در اولین جلسه درباره داستان فریدون بحث خواهیم کرد و امید آن است که بتوانیم بخشهای مهم داستان را از نجات ایران تا سوگ فرزندان پوشش دهیم.

جناب آقای سپهری با قبول درخواست ما راوی این جلسه خواهند بود.

The event is orgnized in collaboration with department of Near Eastern Languages & Civilization (NELC) – University of Washington
