Reflections from the Big Bend Poets Reading Event

Ali F. Bilir gathered with poetry lovers on September 9th, at Tallahassee. It was a such a warm and cozy event with full of emotion, intellectual and cultural exchange. Bilir read some poems from his recent book “Migration Ballads”.


During the event, Defne Bilir, (Ali F. Bilir’s daughter), coordinated the discussions, served as a translator, and answered questions related to Turkish culture, and literary traditions. She also recited her father’s poems in English.
