On May 14, Queens College Evening Readings will feature Brad Gooch, who will discuss his newest book, “Rumi’s Secret: The Life of the Sufi Poet of Love.” A biography of Rumi, the thirteenth century Persian poet revered by contemporary readers, this pathbreaking work brings to life the man behind the love writings and places him in the fascinating historical period in which he lived. About “Rumi’s Secret,” the Washington Post says, “A dazzling feat of scholarship, the book restores Rumi to the glories and hardships of his momentous age.”
The conversation and Q&A will be moderated by Queens College Professor, Roger Sedarat.
