Books & Bridges: Featuring Brian Birch
Mar 11, 2017, 2:00 pm
Encounter the spiritual vision of Persian poetry. Rasoul Sorkhabi, research professor at the University of Utah, will lead a discussion on “The Great Persian Poet Rumi: Who He Was and Why He Matters.” Rasoul Sorkhabi first encountered Rumi’s poetry as a young boy living in Iran. Rumi’s books have accompanied him in his life journey through India, Japan and the USA. He is a professor of geoscience at the University of Utah and founded the Rumi Poetry Club of Salt Lake City in 2007. He has published two books on Rumi: The Art of Loving (2012) and Rumi Essays (2016).
Books and Bridges is a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
This event is made possible with support from Books & Bridges, Weller Book Works, and Utah Humanities.
