Multilingual Poetry Reading to Mark World Poetry Day at Bilkent

On Tuesday, March 21, the Bilkent Literature Society will celebrate World Poetry Day with a very out-of-the-ordinary poetry reading. The participants are to include ambassadors from 13 nations, who will read poems in their own languages, from Sinhalese to Tajik, and talk about their cultures.

The event, which will take place at 5:45 p.m. in room EE-01, is being presented in memory of the late Prof. Talat Halman, founding chairman of the Department of Turkish Literature at Bilkent and a renowned translator of poetry as well as a noted poet in his own right.

At the event, programs including translations of the poems to be read will be provided, and tea will be served. Students taking GE250-251 will receive points for attending.
