Poetry Reading | A Thousand Years of Persian Poetry By Women: Readings, Music and Conversation (virtual)


Poets, artists, and activists share and reflect on centuries of poetry from women across Iran, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and India. Whether mocking impotent husbands, calling out for emancipation, speaking to one's heart, or leveling criticism at state violence, the concerns and experiences reflected in the poetry collection, The Mirror of My Heart, are as diverse as the lives of the women who expressed them. The new collection spans from the Middle Ages to contemporary times and from Iran all the way to Uzbekistan. Featuring: Arooj Aftab, musician; Oscar-moninated actress Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog; The Expanse); Dick Davis, translator (The Mirror of My Heart: A Thousand Years of Persian Poetry by Women); Roya Hakakian, author (A Beginner's Guide to America: For the Immigrant and the Curious); Dina Nayeri, author (The Ungrateful Refugee); Sholeh Wolpé, poet, playwright, literary translator (The Conference of the Birds); Shahzia Sikander, artist; Wazina Zondon, co-founder (Coming Out Muslim: Radical Acts of Love)
