In what ways can poetry illuminate overlapping circles of concern between religions? What are the insights that emerge when language gestures towards the ineffable and the numinous? In this interfaith poetry reading hosted by Pamela Wildheart and organised by Poetry Festival Singapore, join poets and readers from a variety of religious backgrounds — including Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and Buddhist traditions — as they share poems about faith and spirituality, including from the anthology A Given Grace, co-edited by Desmond Kon Zhicheng Mingde and Eric Valles. Poets and readers include Shilpa Dikshit Thapliyal, Noor Iskandar, Rabbi Miriam Wajnberg, Perundevi, Oliver Seet, Kimberly Williams, Shelly Bryant, and Ow Yeong Wai Kit.
Date / Time: 31 July 2022 (Sunday), 4.30 to 5.30 p.m.
Venue: LASALLE College of the Arts, Ngee Ann Kongsi Library (Level 4, Block F), 1 McNally St, Singapore 187940
Updates: On 31 July, Tender Leaves director Shelly Bryant was invited to read at the Poetry Festival Singapore event, A Given Grace: Inter-Religious Poetry Reading.
