Mizna Reading + Q&A

Mizna brings together a powerful slate of today’s most compelling Muslim and Southwest Asian and North African poets: Tarik Dobbs, Ifrah Mansour, Sagirah Shahid, and Moheb Soliman. Mizna is a critical space for Arab and SWANA literature, film, and art. We publish Mizna: Prose, Poetry, and Art Exploring Arab America. For twenty years, we have sought to reflect the depth and multiplicity of our community and have been committed to being a space for Arab, Muslim, and other artists from the region to reclaim our narratives and engage audiences in meaningful and artistically excellent art. After the pre-recorded reading, the poets engage in live Q&A with the Festival audience. Moderated by Lana Barkawi.
