A New World of Words: Afghan Poetry and Culture
Norfolk & Norwich Millennium Library, Norwich
Saturday 19th May 2012 16:00
Part of the Persian Poets' Tour 2012
An audience of ninety people came to Norwich Millennium Library to hear two leading Afghan poets, Shakila Azizzada and Reza Mohammadi, read alongside their poet-translators, Mimi Khalvati and Nick Laird. Sarah Maguire read her translations of Partaw Naderi's poems as, sadly, Partaw was unable to join us for the tour.
We are enormously grateful to the Writers' Centre Norwich for working so hard to organise such a successful event and to the British Centre for Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia.
