The Ledbury Poetry Festival: A Celebration of Poetry and Translation
July 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Poetry Translation Centre is delighted to bring two new publications to Ledbury: I Will Not Fold These Maps by internationally acclaimed Bidoon poet Mona Kareem and A Friend’s Kitchen by Sudanese poet Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi. Both originally written in Arabic and presented in English for the first time, these bilingual collections overlap in language and theme but have a distinct identity of their own. Join them and their translators Sara Elkamel, Bryar Bajalan and Shook, for a morning of moving bilingual readings and in-depth exploration of their work.
