Description
On April 16th, Persian Arts Festival welcomes Maryam Habibian, author of the play Forugh’s Reflecting Pool: The Life and Work of Forugh Farrokhzad, and Fawzia Afzal-Khan, editor of Shattering The Stereotypes: Muslim Women Speak Out. Ms. Habibian will read a section from her play and offer a dramatic reading of some of Farrokhzad’s poems, in English and Persian. Ms. Afzal-Khan will sing a selection of Farrokhzad’s poems in Persian.

The event will take place on Wednesday, April 16th from 6-8 PM at the Bowery Poetry Club. There is a $12 cover, which buys you one drink. As usual, an open mic will follow the featured readers. If you would like to read your work, in English and/or Persian, please email poetry@persianartsfestival.org to sign up. Anyone can read, as long as what you read has some connection to Iran, Iranian culture, Iranian-American experience and so on. If you sign up, please plan to read no more than 2 or 3 poems or about 5-7 minutes worth of prose.
