For our first reading of the new year, our featured reader will be San Rafael poet/author Tamam Kahn whose latest book, Untold: A History of the Wives of Prophet Muhammad, is a prosimetrum (prose with lyric poetry embedded in the narrative). This non-fiction/poetry writing provides a vehicle for presenting history that hasn’t been told to most of us – the story of the wives of Prophet Muhammad. Tamam is also the editor of The Sound Journal.
The reading will take place
