Etel Adnan

It was a rare pleasure to have Etel Adnan read at SPT last year on International Women's Day, at the release party for our anthology Technologies of Measure: A Celebration of Bay Area Women Writers. We are so pleased to have her back for a full reading now. Adnan was born in Beirut in 1925 and is the author of numerous books, including Paris When It's Naked, Of Cities and Women, and Sitt Marie Rose, which has been translated into over ten languages and is considered a classic of Middle Eastern Literature. Adnan currently divides her time between Lebanon, Paris, and the Bay Area.
