Take your seat in the salon as Yadollah Royaee, Asieh Amini, Seyed Mehdi Mousavi and Fatemeh Ekhtesari step up to the podium. Yadollah Royaee lives in France and is considered the father of Iranian new wave poetry. Asieh Amini has lived in Norway since 2010 and two of her poetry collections have been published in Norwegian. Seyed Mehdi Mousavi and Fatemeh Ekhtesari are Lillehammer’s new City of Refuge authors and we look forward to getting to know these two widely recognized authors better. The four authors represent different traditions and will read their own poetry, written in Persian, known for its suitability as a poetic language. Introduction by Fatemeh Ekhtesari.
