Live Music by Haale, whose songs are trance-inducing, rhythmically propulsive, and lyrically engaging
tapestries that draw on both Persian mystical and American psychedelic musical traditions.

Readings by PAF’s feat Shab-e She’r authors and poets:
Said Sayrafiezadeh, Amir Parsa, Soraya Shalforoosh, Solmaz Shari, Dalia Sofer, Kaveh Bassiri, Roger Sedarat, Richard Jeffrey Newman and Niloufar Talebi!

Join us for PAF’s annual Persian New Year Celebration! This Norooz will feature distinguished authors and guests of our last three seasons of Shab-e She’r as they ring in the New Year by reciting newly written pieces that celebrate the rite of spring. This will pave the way for a smashing performance by Persian Sufi rocker, Haale! For more info on Haale, go to
