PRE-ORDER

2015 World Poetry Slam Champion and Woman of the World co-Champion Emtithal "Emi" Mahmoud presents her hauntingly beautiful debut poetry collection.


Brimming with rage, sorrow, and resilience, this collection traverses an expansive terrain: genocide; diaspora; the guilt of surviving; racism and Islamophobia; the burdens of girlhood; the solace of sisterhood; the innocence of a first kiss.  Heart-wrenching and raw, defiant and empowering, Sisters’ Entrance explores how to speak the unspeakable. 
 
Author Bio

Born in Darfur and raised in Philadelphia, Emtithal (Emi) Mahmoud is the reigning Individual World Poetry Slam Champion and one of BBC’s 100 Most Influential Women of 2015. Currently a senior at Yale University, a Leonore Annenberg Scholar, and Global Health Fellow, Emi studies Anthropology and Molecular Biology at Yale in the hopes of one day alleviating structural disparities on maternal and child health in disadvantaged communities the world over. Outside of academics, Emi contributes to an international research initiative and teaches spoken word poetry in order to empower youth with the power of voice in various communities. As a child and adolescent, Emi became a public speaker, presenting poetry to raise awareness and aid to address the genocide in Darfur. A public speaker and poet, Emi continues to collaborate with various artists, activists, and academics in an attempt to use poetry and critical thought to explore the full extent of human expression.
