Join us for a reading of: Things You May Find Hidden In My Ear: Poems from Gaza by Mosab Abu Toha.

Our very own Professor Tonya Foster will be participating.

Please join City Lights, the Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA), and a star-studded cast of poets — including, via Zoom from Cairo, the author himself — for a group reading of the entirety of Things You May Find Hidden in My Ear, the award-winning debut volume by Palestinian poet and founder of the Edward Said Library in Gaza, Mosab Abu Toha. All proceeds will benefit MECA, which is helping to provide emergency assistance to families displaced by Israel’s ongoing attack on Gaza, as well as procuring emergency medical supplies for hospitals and clinics.

City Lights Bookstore is located at 261 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133.
