Infatuation or delusion, fling or lifetime love, magic and misery, we bring you a Valentine celebration using poetry, music and myth from world cultures. Revel in the ecstatic complexity of love and romance.

International House Doorways Women’s Group hosts a unique program in combination with Charlotte Friends of Jung, The Charlotte Center for Literary Arts (Charlotte Lit) and music by The Bechtler Ensemble. We’ll indulge in this exploration with poems and music that are both universal to love and unique to each culture. We begin with wine and light hors d’oeuvres followed by a performance by Tanja Bechtler cello, Bob Teixeira guitar, Larry Sorkin reading.

Bring your checkbook! Original paintings by Terry Thirion inspired by the poems will be displayed for sale to raise funds for the International House Doorways Women’s Group.
