– re: Creation the truth is a myth

I’m dusting off my fez to present a Nasreddin Hoca story from The Uncommon Sense of the Immortal Mullah Nasruddin with other Anne Izard Award winners. Actually, it’s a string of stories and jokes:

  • “Cutting the branch he’s sitting on”
  • “Four brays of the donkey”
  • “When I was alive, I always went that way to the graveyard”
  • “Dog waters the headstone”
  • “You mustn’t startle the potter’s camels.”

Please do come if you’re around. They’ll have copies of our books at the festival bookstore, I believe.

While in New London I’ll also be meeting friends for dinner and stopping by some familiar haunts! Hope to see you there!
