Stories of the Silk Road

Dana Sherry and Ann Riley
Storytelling Room – Rm 220 / 3:00 - 4:00

Dana Sherry and Ann Riley will be performing exotic “Silk Road Tales” from Central Asia. Dana and Ann have both explored the cultures of the Silk Road out of love and fascination. They will provide the camels – join them!

Dana Sherry was a respectable historian of Central Asia until she turned to a life of storytelling. Now she brings folk tales from the heart of the Silk Road alive and transforms historical events into tales of wonder and horror. She also hosts the Caravan of Stories at the Silk Road House in Berkeley, a monthly storytelling series dedicated to the oral traditions of Central Asia.
