New Publications of Sheida Mohamadi

Jordan Center for Persian Studies & Culture has recently published a new book and an audio CD by our poet-in-residence, Sheida Mohamadi

We are happy to announce the publication of Ms. Sheida Mohamadi’s most recent book, "Hug Me Against the Haze", which is a collection of her poems translated into English. These forty two poems provide a glimpse into the state of modern Persian poetry in exile, where ideas about the self and home, nostalgia, love and a feeling of loss are expressed against the backdrop of three continents visited by the poet.

We have also published her audio CD, where she recites thirteen of her poems from her book "I Blink and You are a Peacock" along with the music of maestro cellist, Homayoun Khosravi.
