Three Persian Poets Read at Edinburgh Central Library

Our three Persian poets - Azita Ghahreman (translated by Maura Dooley), Reza Mohammadi (translated by Nick Laird) and Shakila Azizzada (translated by Mimi Khalvati) - received a very warm welcome for their only reading in Scotland which took place in Edinbugh Central Library.

One audience member said that, 'The whole evening was just magical- I would gladly sit through the same event again and again!' and many people commented how much they really appreciated the chance to hear poetry read in Persian.

We're really grateful to Annie Bell and everyone at the Library for making the evening such a huge success.

Take a look at these photos of the poets on tour taken by Travis Elborough.
