So writes Ahmed Al Mulla, the groundbreaking Saudi poet whose vivid, free-flowing prose has gained him critical acclaim across the Arab World.

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.
