Midsummer’s Night Reading in London by Three Persian Poets

For their only reading in London, acclaimed Persian poets, Azita Ghahreman (translated by Maura Dooley), Reza Mohammadi (translated by Nick Laird) and Shakila Azizzada (translated by Mimi Khalvati) read alongside their UK poet-translators at The Gallery on the third floor of Foyles Bookshop on Charing Cross Road.

Sadly, Mimi Khalvati wasn't able to join us, so Shakila's poems were read by PTC Director, Sarah Maguire.

A capacity audience of more than 100 people responded with huge warmth and enthusiasm to our poets. We're very grateful to everyone who came along to this really memorable evening.
