Interfaith Event to Feature Three Sisters of Story
Nebraska Wesleyan University will host an interfaith event, “Keeping Faith: Three Sisters of Story,” on Thursday, March 16.
The evening will feature storytellers Rohina Malik, Kim Schultz and Susan Stone who will share stories from their own faiths — Christian, Jewish and Muslim — to transcend differences through shared belief in the power of compassion.
The women travel throughout the country to share their story. Malik is a critically acclaimed playwright and solo performance artist. Her plays include “Unveiled,” “The Mecca Tales” and “Yamina’s Necklace.” Stone has been a professional storyteller and teaching artist for 30 years. Her stories have appeared in many anthologies, including The Voice of Children: A Siddur for Shabbat, Yom Kippur Readings. She has won the National Jewish Book Award. Schultz is a Chicago-based author, actor and refugee advocate. In 2009 she traveled to the Middle East as an artist/activist to meet with Iraqi refugees, where she fell in love with one. She has turned their stories and her own into a critically acclaimed solo play, “No Place Called Home.”
The event begins at 7 p.m. in O’Donnell Auditorium, located at 50th Street and Huntington Ave. It is free and open to the public.
