Cara Judea Alhadeff will speak about and sign her new book, Zazu Dreams: Between the Scarab and the Dung Beetle: A Cautionary Fable for the Anthropocene Era, on Thursday, April 12th at 7:30pm.
Can Love Overcome Monoculture? Lessons from Zazu Dreams
Dr. Cara Judea Alhadeff (www.carajudea.com) will perform excerpts from Zazu Dreams that challenge consumer-addicted convenience-culture. Rooted in environmental science and cross-cultural storytelling, this is a tale of climate justice and social permaculture. Big Pharma, Big Oil, and Agribusiness giants stalk planet Earth while a Sephardic Arab-Jewish boy confronts environmental racism as he learns from symbiotic relationships among humans and within the natural world. This creative non-fiction performance will include lush visuals by Micaela Amato Amateau (www.micaelaamato.com), live Persian and Ladino (Judeo-Arabic/Spanish) music, and calls-to-action from local environmental and cultural organizations.
This is a FREE event, open to everybody!
