Join us for an evening with New-York-based poet, writer and activist Remi Kanazi. Remi is the editor of Poets For Palestine (Al Jisser Group, 2008) and author of the acclaimed book Poetic Injustice. His political commentary has been featured by news outlets throughout the world, including Al Jazeera, GRITtv with Laura Flanders, and BBC Radio. His poetry has taken him across North America, the UK, and the Middle East, and he recently appeared in the Palestine Festival of Literature as well as Poetry International. He is a recurring writer in residence and advisory board member for the Palestine Writing Workshop.
“Some poetry is meant to make you sit in quiet contemplation. Not so with Remi Kanazi’s. Read his words out loud for yourself and your friends. Let their compassionate anger, their intricate dance of ideas, their unflinching witness, wash over you, dance with you, pick you up, and spur you to action.” Ali Abunimah, Co-founder of Electronic Intifada and author of One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse.
