$50 (10% off for members)

Explore Walt Whitman Award winner Threa Almontaser’s debut poetry collection in a one-night seminar style session. In this discussion, we will read with an eye on Muslim poetics: the use of religious text as context and Arabic poetry in translation. While the text in particular details Muslim-American experiences of women, the two recommended texts can be used to discuss more broadly the growing body of Muslim American contemporary poetry. 

One Sunday: May 15 from 1 to 3:00 p.m. ET Online
