Lunch Poems reading by Dunya Mikhail

Iraqi poet Dunya Mikhail will read at noon Thursday, February 1, in the Morrison Library.  Mikhail immigrated to the United States in 1996 after increasing harassment over her poetry, which confronts war and exile with subversive depictions of suffering. In 2001 she was awarded the UN Human Rights Award for Freedom of Writing. The War Works Hard won PEN’s Award for Poetry in Translation and was selected as one of New York Public Library’s 25 best books of 2005.
