Come hear commissioned presentation of music, poetry and art as part of Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here 2016, in honor of Al Mutanabbi Street in Baghdad, Iraq. This event is free and open to the public.

Al-Mutanabbi Street is a winding street about one thousand feet long, noted for its many bookstores and outdoor bookstalls where people gathered as a great humanitarian center. Named after the famous classical Arab poet Abu at-Tayyib al-Mutanabbi (915–965 CE), it has been a thriving center of Baghdad’s bookselling and publishing for many years. On March 5, 2007, a bomb went off in the centuries old Al Mutanabbi Street book sellers district in Baghdad. The explosion took the lives of thirty people and destroyed a large portion of the neighborhood. The book sellers, who survived, rebuilt their stores and are once again in business.
