Life and Work of Mahmoud Darwish Remembered
Monday, September 29, 2008
New York, NY —
The Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, who died in August, was considered the most distinguished literary voice of his community. So much so, in fact, that he received a state funeral from the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah. Last week Darwish's New York admirers got together to celebrate his work. WNYC's Siddhartha Mitter was there.
