"Being a poet means being human," declared the great Iranian feminist poet Forugh Farrokhazed. Three leading Middle Eastern American poet-scholars - Mohja Kahf, Dunya Mikhail, and Farzaneh Milani - explore the complicated intersection of religion, gender, and political life through readings and discussion of their work and the work of the great female poets of their home countries—Iran, Iraq, and Syria—as a way to understand the evolutions and revolutions of the last fifty years. Moderated by Poets House Artistic Director Stephen Motika (rmharris)
