Tuesday, January 31: Mohsen Emadi


No Ban:
An Evening of Poetry and Protest
with
Mohsen Emadi

Following President Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations, Phoneme Media is proud to announce an event featuring exiled Iranian poet Mohsen Emadi, who will not be permitted to return to the United States following his departure on Friday, February 3rd, 2017.

No Ban: An Evening of Poetry and Protest, will take place at 7.30 PM on January 31, 2017, at the Poetic Research Bureau in Chinatown (951 Chung King Road, Los Angeles, CA 90012).

Mohsen Emadi, who has been in exile from Iran for eight years and now resides permanently in Mexico, will be introduced by Phoneme’s founding editor David Shook before reading from his English-language debut Standing on Earth, translated from the Persian by American poet Lyn Coffin. Books will be available for purchase.

Called “one of the brightest stars of twenty-first century Persian poetry” by Sholeh WolpĂ©, Emadi is renowned for his inspired performance of his own work. His poems have been praised by Jerome Rothenberg, Sam Hamill, and Nathalie Handal, who writes, “The poems in his unforgettable collection ground us, and give us flight.”

Review copies of Standing on Earth are available, and Mohsen Emadi is available for interview. Contact David Shook at david@phonememedia.org.
