Dear ZIPANG friend
*In case you missed the most recent Zipang event, you can click here for the online report about the Zipang afternoon of stories from the library of King Ashurbanipal at the British Museum on 12 January. It includes recordings of Fran Hazelton telling The Poor Man of Nippur, Badia Obaid telling Dumuzi (in Arabic), and June Peters telling The Flood. http://www.zipang.org.uk/pastevents/120119.htm
*There's a play in London soon which doesn't have Zipang storytellers in it but is not to be missed!
