New Roads School Hosts Reading Commemorating Baghdad’s al-Mutanabbi Street Bombing

March 5th, 7:00 pm, Ann and Jerry Moss Theater

By Dawn Fairchild - Posted: February 13, 2013

On March 5, 2007 a massive car bomb was detonated on Baghdad’s al-Mutanabbi Street—for centuries the heart of Baghdad’s intellectual and literary community. On March 5, 2013 New Roads will host a poetry reading involving both professional poets and New Roads High School students, to mark the sixth anniversary of the bombing that decimated “the street of booksellers.” Participating poets include Tania Baban, Jordan Elgraby, Majid Naficy, Jim Natal, and Janet Sternburg—all contributors to Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here, a new anthology of poetry written in response to the attack. A selection of letterpress broadsides from the internationally-touring show, al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here, will be displayed in conjunction with the reading. For further information, contact reading coordinator Jim Natal: jrn5070@gmail.com.
