Palestinian Poetry Reading with Ghassan Zaqtan and Fady Joudah
Presented by Boston University
October 3, 2012
In this inspired translation of Like a Straw Bird It Follows Me, Ghassan Zaqtan's tenth and most recent poetry collection, along with selected earlier poems, translator Fady Joudah brings to English-language readers the best work by one of the most important and original Palestinian poets of our time. With these poems Zaqtan enters new terrain, illuminating the vision of what Arabic poetry in general and Palestinian poetry in particular are capable of.
This event will be paired with a delicious free lunch.
