Dear friends:

We would like to invite you to another poetry night on the theme of "Peace and Woman" starting at 7:00 pm on Thursday, April 24th. With the idea that arts and sharing is our most powerful weapon, we hope that you will find that your feelings are expressed via poetry during the event.

Whether you read or merely come to listen, YOU will help us spread our longing for peace and our appreciation of women in society, since peace would not be possible if a society were without its women.  We expect all poetry and peace lovers to join us at this event, and know that we will share an unforgettable night that will remain in our memories.

With the hope of coming together for a night with light, poetry and music...

Bircan Ünver
