Al-Mutanabbi Street Broadsides will be shown In Baghdad

Saad Eskander, the director of the Iraq National Library in Baghdad, is organizing an exhibition of the Al-Mutanabbi Street broadsides. Super excited. Many thanks to Beau Beausoleil for organizing this massive effort and international show. NewLights Press printed this beauty. Poem by Justin Sirois, translation by Haneen Alshujairy.

Thanks, Jenica! Wait till you see what craziness we have planned for the UCampaign and Kickstarter.

If there is a hero archivist/librarian in the world, Saad Eskander is it. For reals.

If anyone has his personal email address, we're trying to get a book donation program started with the Understanding Campaign. We really need to include the Iraqi National Library.
