Join Xochitl-Julisa Bermejo and The Splinter Generation on Tuesday July 13th for an interview with Iranian poet, translator, and guest editor of Atlanta Review's 2010 Iran issue, Sholeh Wolpé. Thanks to Sholeh and The Atlanta Review, The Splinter Generation is currently featuring two powerful poems(some of the first of its kind) from inside the Green Movement of Iran. Join us as we discuss politics and poetry, and listen to readings of some of the most riveting poetry coming from the modern Middle East. Sholeh Wolpé is the author of Rooftops of Tehran, The Scar Saloon, and Sin: Selected Poems of Forugh Farrokhzad for which she was awarded the Lois Roth Translation Prize in 2010 by the American Institute of Iranian Studies. Sholeh is the associate editor of Tablet & Pen: Literary Landscapes from the Modern Middle East edited by Reza Aslan (Norton), the guest editor of Atlanta Review (2010 Iran issue) and the poetry editor of the Levantine Review, an online journal about the Middle East. The Splinter Generation(est. 2008) is an online journal publishing new and exciting poetry, nonfiction, fiction, art, and interviews for and from those born between 1973-1993 on a weekly basis. It's a venue for writers, artists and musicians from all different backgrounds to tell the story of our generation. Please visit us at: splintergeneration.com.
