Café Mana Will Read 'Gospel According to Pilate'

Café Mana in Tehran, managed by celebrated Iranian actress Setareh Eskandari, is to host a series of bilingual novel-reading sessions.
Both the original texts and their Persian translations will be read, ILNA reported on its Persian website.
The first novel to be read is 'The Gospel According to Pilate,' a novel by Franco-Belgian author, dramatist and film director Eric Emmanuel Schmitt, 58.
On April 15-16, the book will be read in Persian and original French. The Persian reading will be from the translation of the book by playwright, theater director and translator Golchehr Damghani. 
The translator, who lived in Paris for 13 years, will read the novel in French. Persian translation of the book will be read by actors Ali-Reza Sanifar and Missaq Zare.
Published in 2000, 'The Gospel According to Pilate' (L'Évangile selon Pilate) is written in three parts. On the last day of Passover (commemoration of liberation by God from slavery in ancient Egypt), Pontius Pilate, the fifth prefect of the Roman Province of Judaea, hears that Jesus, the "magician" from Nazareth, has vanished from his tomb, according to Dominiquechristophelagence.com.
To prevent the theft being used for political ends, Pilate launches an enquiry and tries to find the corpse. But it reappears… alive! 
Rejecting irrational explanations, Pilate trawls Jerusalem in search of a logical answer, interrogating Herod, Herodias, the disciples, doctors, and the high priest of the Second Temple, but when he finds his efforts thwarted, he sets out along the roads of Galilee. Yet the further he goes, the more the mystery deepens.
Tickets to the book reading sessions are available at Tiwall.com. Returns of the first session will go for supporting children afflicted by epidermolysis bullosa (EB), a connective tissue disease causing blisters in skin and mucosal membranes.
Café Mana is located at No. 6, Shahed Alley, Vesal Shirazi Street, Keshavarz Blvd.
