Incredible Northwest poets are joining our community to mark the solemn occasion of 70 years of Nakba and to honor the resilience of Palestinians everywhere.

Poets Elizabeth Austen, Rick Barot, Jourdan Keith, Claudia Castro Luna, JM Miller, and Susan Rich, Rick Simonsen of Elliott Bay Book Company and Billie Swift of Open Books: A Poem Emporium will join members of Seattle’s Palestinian community in a braided Arabic-English reading of Mahmoud Darwish’s poems.

As his poems have for years, together we will conjure the homeland and send the voice of its people soaring over borders, against erasure.

We hope you’ll join us for this very special commemoration.

This event is co-sponsored by the Palestine Museum US.
