Conference of the Birds | Cameron Cross

For those of you interested in Persian mystical literature, the Islamic Books Reading Group will host an informal discussion next Wednesday about the famous Conference of the Birds (Manteq al-tayr) by the twelfth/thirteenth-century sufi poet Farid al-din ‘Attar, led by Cameron Cross (Near Eastern Studies). Participants are asked to read the book before attending, if possible; we will be reading the new translation by Sholeh Wolpé, which is available for purchase at the Literati Bookstore.
