Reading at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris

Virginie Poitrasson and I are reading from a piece I wrote in two languages at the event organized by Sarah Riggs (who also read) at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, 8 March 2007. Other readers at the Soirée included Donna Stonecipher, Etel Adnan, Safaa Fathy, Vanina Maestri, Véronique Pittolo, Ninar Esbar, Leïla Marouane. For me, this was a great honor and I wrote my first 2-language poem in response to Edmond Jabès work for the event. MP3s of the readings should become available through Radio France next week, in case anyone is interested in listening in! This photo was taken by Mexican photographer Antonio Meza.
