Hafez Day 2017: Poetry That Heals

700 years after his death, the 13th century Persian poet Hafez remains Iran's most celebrated bard and one of the most revered writers all across the world.

Hafez is the only writer to have his own holiday, based on the strength of his achievement and his verse that reflects the best aspirations of a people.

Join a diverse slate of featured writers and musicians as we celebrate Hafez Day in San Diego and use verse as an avenue for love, peacemaking and reconciliation.
