Join us to discuss the Richard F. Burton translation of the classic tales from Baghdad's Golden Age. These are the tales about Aladdin, Sinbad and Ali Baba that saved the life of Shahrazad, whose husband, the king, executed each of his wives after a single night of marriage. Beginning an enchanting story each evening, Shahrazad always withheld the ending, and a thousand and one nights later, her life was spared forever. Lynn Harris will lead the discussion.
