Windows/Shababeek: A Bilingual Virtual Reading featuring Philip Metres
June 6, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT
The Arab American History Museum presents a Sukoon bilingual live reading around the theme of Windows/Shababeek, curated and hosted by Sukoon founding editor Rewa Zeinati, and featuring a fabulous lineup of Arab writers and poets, including: Zeyn Joukhadar, Zeina Hashem Beck, Philip Metres, George Abraham, Sahar Mustafa, Zeina Azzam (Arabic) and Farah Chamma (Arabic).
AAHM says: “We’ve spent the last several weeks observing life go back and forth to stillness, isolation, fear or healing, all through the windows of our homes (if we are privileged enough to have them). We’ve pondered other people’s lives existing behind their own windows. What joy or confusion or horror was multiplied? Join us for this bilingual poetry and fiction virtual live reading in collaboration with Sukoon, exploring—in the most broad or intimate sense—the various and infinite ways we interpret the barriers, filters or open fields we call “windows” and how these inform the light and shadows we allow or dissipate.”
This virtual reading will be streamed live on AANM’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/919406768501679/
