Description

Judeo-Spanish tales transmit the wisdom and humor of Sephardic Jews, Jews who originated in the Iberian peninsula (present-day Spain) and who settled all around the Mediterranean.

Paris-based author François Azar will discuss his two new collections of Sephardic folktales, “The Jewish Parrot” and “Bewitched by Solika” — written in both Judeo-Spanish (Ladino) and English — and the significance of storytelling and art in Sephardic culture. Through live performance, members of Seattle’s “Ladineros” Ladino-speaking group will help to bring these classic tales to life.
