The Fat of my Heart
Friday, February 11, 2011

Celebrate the month of love at The Fat of My Heart at Trace Foundation. Join us Friday, February 11, for an exploration of expressions of love and desire in Tibetan literature, historical documents, and song. Special guests will present the sweetest of love stories, real and fictional, songs of love and heartbreak, and love letters and the rules for their composition. The evening will culminate in a love letter writing competition (please see rules for submission below) where the audience will vote for their favorite. We invite you to come indulge in chocolates and wine and find out why the "fat of my heart" means the most tender, choicest morsel of the heart.
