Lyric Thinking with Peter Cole: A Festive Celebration

Join Peter Cole and Ayesha Ramachandran for a shared reading of poems and music from across the Middle East, Mediterranean and beyond in multiple languages. This event is a celebration of lyric poetic traditions that speak to each other across time. Come and read, recite, sing—or just listen and enjoy. This event will recreate the tradition of the festive poetic gathering, familiar from a range of different cultural contexts, as a final celebration of Yale Library’s 2022-23 Model Research Collection, “Lyric Thinking: Poetry in the World.”
