free poetry workshop with Peter Cole, June 23
Peter Cole will be giving a free poetry workshop on Tuesday, June 23, at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle, 3-6 pm.
from the MacArthur Fellows website:
"Peter Cole is a translator, publisher, and poet who brings the often overlooked works of medieval Spain and the modern Middle East to English-speaking audiences...Underlying Cole’s translations is an implicit message of cultural and historical cross-fertilization that is also evident in his work as a poet and a publisher. His Ibis Editions publishes little-known works translated from Arabic, Hebrew, German, French, and Ladino, enlightening English-speaking audiences to the thriving literary tradition of the Levant."
