  • Poetry reading
  • Special guest - Vienna guitarist Fadi El Abd
  • Book signing
  • Photography Exhibition
  • Reception

We are delighted to invite you for an evening of soul-touching Lebanese poetry by Mariam Michtawi; a poetry born from love and loss, joy and sadness, closeness and separation. Poems will be accompanied by photographs by Dr Ania Kruptow  -photographer., who captured the essence and colours of moments. Music played by our special guest-guitarist Fadi El Abd will guide us into the world of senses and emotions. This very special evening will be held in memory of Mariam's little son Anthony, whose cruel illness has taken him away from us when he was just 5 years old.

The poetry reading (in Arabic and English) will be followed by book signing and photography exhibition. We will all have a chance to meet closer and exchange our views and impressions at a reception. 

We are looking forward to seeing you at our evening which, we hope, will leave an imprint of love and tenderness in your hearts.

Evening is support of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
