Adnan Al-Sayegh | Virtual Launch of Let Me Tell You What I Saw

We are delighted to be hosting the launch of Let Me Tell You What I Saw by Adnan Al-Sayegh.  

At this virtual event, renowned poet Adnan Al-Sayegh and poet and translator Jenny Lewis will present Let Me Tell You What I Saw – the first ever dual language English/ Arabic publication of substantial extracts of Adnan's epic poem Uruk's Anthem.

One of the longest poems ever written in Arabic literature, Uruk's Anthem has been described as beautiful, powerful and courageous and at the same time apocalyptic and terrifying in its unwavering scrutiny of, and opposition to, oppression and dictatorship wherever it occurs in the world.

This event will include readings by Adnan and Jenny in Arabic and English followed by a discussion with Jenny Lewis and Ruba Abughaida about the process of translating Adnan's work for a UK audience.

Register for FREE at www.eventbrite.co.uk. The Zoom link will be included in your confirmation email.
