Syrian Poet Firas Sulaiman to read at Poets’ Corner Open Mic
June 12 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$10
Syrian poet, Firas Sulaiman, will be featured in June on our outdoor stage. Firas has authored multiple publications in Arabic, including six volumes of poetry. An open mic will follow.
Firas will read in Arabic, which enables the intrinsic musicality and tone of his original language and culture to truly shine. Firas’s wife, Samantha, a writer, editor, and translator, will translate into English.
Open mic registration will be available on-site on the day of the reading. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in our open-sided Carriage Shed.
Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door.
This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
