Penyair Suheir Hammad membacakan dua karya puisi-narasi (spoken-word) yang membuat kita bergidik: "What I Will" (Apa Ku Akan) dan "break (clustered)" (patah setandan) — suatu meditasi tentang perang dan perdamaian, tentang wanita dan kekuasaan. Tunggu baris yang menggetarkan: "Jangan takuti apa yang sudah meledak. Bila harus, takuti yang belum meledak."

Poet, playwright
In her poems and plays, Suheir Hammad blends the stories and sounds of her Palestinian-American heritage with the vibrant language of Brooklyn to create a passionately modern voice. Full bio
