Memory of Embers: Iraqi Poets on Exile, War and Resistance

Seagull Books and Exiled Writers Ink present an evening of poetry and discussion that platforms Iraqi voices and delves into themes of memory and exile, war and dictatorship, resistance and return.

This event will feature performances from Salah Al Hamdani, Adnan al-Sayegh and Reem Kais Kubba – three remarkable Iraqi poets whose readings each offer unique insight into the lived experiences of the exiled. The event will also celebrate the UK launch of Baghdad, Adieu, a collection of poems by Salah Al Hamdani.
