The University of Arizona Poetry Center- Brings SHAME EVERY ROSE Exhibit to Tucson & Much More

Poetry Center brings “Shame Every Rose” exhibit to Tucson
View this  in your browser
It’s March, which means the Poetry Center’s redbud tree is blooming (see above) and our event calendar is full of exciting and diverse literary events. Check out what we’re offering and come join us this month for a reading, exhibit, screening, book club, poetry discussion group, Family Day, and/or the Tucson Festival of Books!

Shame Every Rose: Images from Afghanistan

I’ll make a tattoo of my lover’s blood
and shame every rose in the green garden.
In collaboration with the Poetry Foundation, the Poetry Center is proud to bring Shame Every Rose: Images from Afghanistan to Tucson. This exhibit illuminates the landay, a clandestine oral folk poetry practiced by the Pashtun women who live near the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Meant to be recited or sung aloud, the landay is a couplet of 22 syllables. (You can learn more about landays in an article by Eliza Griswold available here.) The exhibit, on display at the Poetry Center through May 22, features photographs by Seamus Murphy illustrating life in Afghanistan and landays by Pashtun women.On Thursday, March 5, at 6:00 pm, we are pleased to host a presentation related to theShame Every Rose exhibit. Photographer Seamus Murphy and writer Eliza Griswold give a talk, and Murphy will screen his short film, Snake. Please join us after for a reception and a viewing of the exhibit. This event takes place at the Poetry Center and is free and open to the public. We thank our co-sponsors, the Poetry Foundation and the UA Center for Middle Eastern Studies, for making this event possible.

LA Times Critic’s Pick

“Themes and fixations crash together
like vehicles in a multicar pileup.”
–New York Times

“The wildest runway show in town
won’t be at Lincoln Center…”
New York Daily News

“There’s galvanizing anger here…” Time Out New York

“EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH may be the breakthrough
work Callaghan’s admirers have been waiting for…” –Hollywood Reporter

NY Theater Now calls EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH a “stunning production”!

Featuring Christian Coulson, Allegra Rose Edwards, Chelsea Nicolle Fryer,
Tonya Glanz, Lisa Kitchens, Nina Ordman, Miriam Silverman and Robbie Tann.

Victor is a ruthless fashion designer in the 1970s at the top of his game. Esme, his glamorous protégé and muse, is pushed aside when an ordinary Midwestern woman inspires Victor to make his artistry accessible to the masses. A generation later, a woman grappling with a healthy dose of self-loathing must wrestle her own family demons to find her way back through the world of fashion that won’t give her size a second look. Slipping back and forth through time, EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH is a viciously funny look at the struggle to find an identity that’s more than skin deep.

Get your discounted tickets to Sheila Callaghan’s
“…wicked, unpredictable, wonderfully dark humor.” –Arts in LA
