Poetry Night with Houshang Ebtehaj (Saayeh) – 2nd event

As you may know, the event “Poetry Night with Houshang Ebtehaj (Saayeh)” was sold out on September 18th. Due to the large demand from the community and increasing interest in this event, UBC Asian Studies Department (Persian Language and Iranian Studies Initiative) in collaboration with UBC Persian Club planned to host a second poetry night with Mr. Ebtehaj, and Saayeh kindly agreed to it.

You can come to UBC Persian Club’s new office at the SUB (Student Union Building) to pick up your tickets. We will be in our office on Monday and Tuesday from 2pm-4pm to serve you with the tickets.

Come join us for a night of literature, art and love:

Poetry Night with Houshang Ebtehaj (Saayeh)

Having dedicated himself to his art for six decades, Sayeh (Amir Houshang Ebthaj) has shown great perseverance in writing unfettered poems. A renowned poet of conscience, his deceptively simple poems – loaded with sublime allegories, penetrating ironies, visual images, sober elegies, literary allusions and masterly juxtapositions – evoke powerful mental pictures. The wide spectrum of his poetic work ranges from classic rhymed lyrics (ghazals) to modern blank verse delving into the Iranian psyche.
For an unforgettable meditative experience of joy and beauty, come to Kay Meek Centre, 1700 Mathers Ave. West Vancouver, on September 25 for an evening of music and poetry with this iconic Persian poet.
Date: Sep 25
Time: 8:00pm – 10:30pm
Location: Kay Meek Centre
