UPDATE: I would like to thank you all for the incredible support with the “On Loving” launch which was held at Arta Gallery on Feb 24th, 2019. I was extremely touched to see a crowd of so many wonderful people who gathered at Arta Gallery that night regardless of the terrible weather conditions, strong winds and blizzard in Toronto. A genuine group of people with their whole focus on this event. I hope everyone made it home safe and sound. All of you certainly helped make the start of this journey so promising. As many of you may know, the event was dedicated to Forugh Farrokhzad, the late famous female Persian poet. A beautiful night made possible by Banafsheh Taherian as the master of ceremony who also read a part of the first chapter, followed by Mrs. Lili Nabavi’s insightful words, and Stephanie Fysh’s lovely message. I would like to thank everyone who made this night possible. I will post the clips and pictures as soon as they are available to me.
The message I left you and ending my talk with was to explore these few magical words from Rumi, the 13th century Persian poet:
“Love is the religion and universe is the book.”
Thank you again my friends for this extraordinary support!
Please join me in celebrating the launch of my debut novel, On Loving, 5-7 p.m., February 24 at Arta Gallery in Toronto’s Distillery District. (etc.)
