The Berlin International Literature Festival is calling for a day of reading Darwish's poetry, world-wide, on October 5th. The site doesn't have details about planned activities, but I like to imagine people reading his poems out loud around the globe.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
The Arabist is a labor of love. We don't make much from ads, so please contribute to keep us going.
