What better way to benefit Litquake, the west coast's largest literary festival, than with an evening of readings, dancing and wine? This special night celebrates the release of author Holly Payne's new book, Damascena
, which transports readers to the enchanting world of 13th-century Persia and brings the legendary poet Mevlana Rumi to life. Highlights of the evening also include a reading of "The Turn" by Rumi in Farsi by Bay Area author Tamim Ansary, plus a performance of the sacred dance Sema by the Sufi Mariam Baker (after which you're invited to get down on the dance floor yourself). Your ticket includes admission, a signed copy of Damascena
