Part of: Persian Poets’ Tour 2013 Final Reading for Our Three Persian Poets at Ledbury Poetry Festival
The final reading of our three wonderful Persian poets - Azita Ghahreman (translated by Maura Dooley), Reza Mohammadi (translated by Nick Laird) and Shakila Azizzada (translated by Mimi Khalvati - took place at Ledbury Poetry Festival.
As with all five readings, this event was a huge success. The poets were all very touched by the warm welcome they received and they really enjoyed having the chance to visit the beautiful town of Ledbury during perfect summer weather.

A wonderful end to a fantastic tour. Thanks very much to everyone who helped us make it such a success. We do hope to be able to have further events with our Persian poets before too long.
