Rohina Malik, Kim Schultz and Susan Stone travel the country sharing their stories of faith to transcend differences through shared belief in the power of compassion. They will share their stories at a special interfaith event at NWU on March 16.

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.
