Hear beautiful poems in English and Arabic, celebrate contemporary women's stories from across the Arabic speaking world, learn about cross-cultural collaboration, and explore how poetry-in-translation brings writers together across the boundaries of nations in this lively, dynamic, group reading. Members of the Her Story Is collective will share poems from their exciting anthology project and will share key lessons from the translation process which transformed and improved their own creative work. Q&A to follow.
