Join us to celebrate the launch of a new book of poems by Sudanese poet Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi that have been inspired by the collection of material from Meroe, Sudan, in the Petrie Museum. This book of poems is in Arabic with translations by Sarah Maquire and Rashid Elsheikh and lavish photographs of Sudanese objects by Crispin Hughes. It is the result of a residency held in partnership with the Poetry Translation Centre that was funded by Arts Council England. Readings of the poems will take place on the night.
