Poets Adnan al-Sayegh and Jenny Lewis will read poems inspired and dedicated to

Mesopotamia.

Adnnan Saigh born in al-Kufa, Iraq in 1955, Adnan al-Sayegh is one of the most original voices from the generation of Iraqi poets known as the Eighties Movement. His poetry, crafted with elegance and sharp as an arrowhead, carries an intense passion for freedom, love and beauty. Adnan uses his words as a weapon to denounce the devastation of war and the horrors of dictatorship.

Jenny Lewis is an award-winning poet, playwright, screenwriter, songwriter and children’s author. In 2013, she was given an Arts Council grant to develop a programme of creative writing workshops and readings with the Iraqi poet, Adnan al Sayegh which led to a pamphlet of poems in English and Arabic, Now as Then: Mesopotamia-Iraq (published by Mulfran Press in April 2013), a series of workshops and a performance at the British Museum in April 2014.
