Words: Readings in Two Languages

September 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A bicycle:

there is no poetry

in stopping.

So writes Ahmed Al Mulla, the groundbreaking Saudi poet whose vivid, free-flowing prose has gained him critical acclaim across the Arab World. Diverging from the strict, metered-style of Arabic poetry, Al Mulla chooses to embrace free verse in his poems. Al Mulla will share a number of his poems in both the original Arabic and English translation alongside poet Mohammad Salama and musical accompaniment by Hafez Modirzadeh.
