La Mama Poetica March

March 28 @ 7:30 pm 10:00 pm

Poetry of the Times

We kick off Poetica 2023 with four gutsy poetic voices including Mammad Aidani, who investigates the experience of Iranian and Middle Eastern immigrants and refugees and whose writings have been banned in Iran. We feature the poetry of Misbah Wolf, author of ‘Rooftops in Karachi’ and ‘Carapace’ (2022) and currently working on “an almighty, beautiful heretical book”! Ecopoet Anne Elvey deconstructs the opposition between culture and nature in these times of ecological crisis in her book “leaf” (2022) and Les Wicks, published across 36 countries and 15 languages, will read from his 15th poetry collection “Time Taken – New and Selected” (2022).

Poets: Mammad Aidani, Misbah Wolf, Anne Elvey and Les Wicks

Host: Amanda Anastasi

Poetica March 2023 will be livestreamed on March 28, 8pm as well. Livestream playback will be available for 48 hrs.
