Iraqi-American poet Dunya Mikhail will be reading her poetry at an event titled, "I was in a Hurry: Dunya Mikhail Shares Her Life Experiences." Dunya Mikhail, born in Baghdad, left Iraq in the mid-1990s after her work as a journalist landed her on Saddam Hussein's enemies list. She has published her poems extensively in Arabic and received critical recognition. Her translated work is dramatic and accessible; her new work in English has gained popular as well as critical recognition.  

This event is sponsored by the Programs in Arabic, Art, Comparative Literature, Middle East Studies, and the Department of English. The Class of 1902 Lecture Fund also provided generous support.
