Literacy of the Heart: A Conversation with Khaled Hosseini and Ellen Grace OBrian

The times we live in require us to develop a literacy of the heart - a deeper quality of listening, discerning, and connecting heart to heart and soul to soul. Literature itself, both poetry and prose, plays a timeless role in awakening our hearts to deeper truths we may otherwise miss. 

Author Khaled Hosseini and Poet Ellen Grace O'Brian will talk about the ways reading, writing, and listening can bring forth profound questions, surprising graces, and the palpable presence of radical hope. Khaled will read selections from "And the Mountains Echoed," and Ellen will read from her recently released award-winning book of poems, "The Moon Reminded Me." 

Please join us for this special evening as one of our favorite novelists introduces us to one of his favorite poets!

Yogacharya Rev. Ellen Grace O'Brian is a poet, teacher, writer, and spiritual director of the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment in San Jose, California. Khaled Hosseini is the award winning author of "Kite Runner", "And the Mountains Echoed" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns."
