Peter Cole, Iman Mersal, and Robyn Creswell

November 29, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

On the 29th November, The Elliott Bay Book Company will be virtually welcoming two poets with new collections: Peter Cole’s Draw Me After and Iman Mersal’s The Threshold. They overlap in regional affinity, with Peter dually based in Jerusalem and the US and Iman hailing from Egypt and now residing in Canada. They also share the literary influences of Robyn Creswell, editor of Draw Me After and translator of The Threshold, with whom they’ll discuss their new work. Jonathan Galassi, former president of FSG and poetry editor for the press, will introduce the night’s speakers. Together, they are certain to have an enlivening conversation on poetry and publishing, collaboration and translation.

This event is co-hosted with Books and Books, Seminary Co-op, Community Bookstore, McNally Jackson, Brookline Booksmith, Rain Taxi, and Words without Borders.
