When:January 11, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Discussion Presentation Reading Screening Signing
As a lifelong advocate for rights and opposition to human trafficking, Hiva Panahi speaks eloquently and passionately about the worldwide struggle for freedom and dignity, and especially about the special oppression of women and girls. Her poetry, at times heartbreaking, at times uplifting, reflects the lives of women in Iran, as well as the experience of a refugee seeking shelter in a foreign land.
Dr. Panahi will read from her first collection of poetry in English, after which she will answer questions about her journey and her art.
