Kurdish Book Club

Kurdish Exile Association (KEA) is happy to invite you for the first activity of Kurdish Book Club in a series of seminars during which different experts will discuss a variety of books.

The series will kick off on the afternoon of Saturday, 23rd February. In the first of the seminars the Kurdish writer, Mr. Samad Mala Ahmad, will be presenting an evaluation of Nawshirwan Mustafa Amin’s book series, Along the Way Picking Flowers.

In this book, the author starts an overture of the ancient past and pauses some serious question about the hidden and the obscure element of the ancient history of the Middle East, especially the Area that spans Kurdistan. Then he launches into the known and not so known literature of Mesopotamia, shedding light on new interpretations of these ancient texts. Then he tackles the issue of the avant-garde of Kurdish classic poetry, with masterful dexterity and perceptive richness, unveiling the hidden gems in the poetries of ten of those great poets.

The seminar, which will be held in Kurdish, will be chaired by Dr Rebwar Fatah.

All Welcome!
