GAMA Presents: Reem Abou-samra Book Reading

GAMA Detroit is excited to finally start up programming again since the beginning of the pandemic! It's been a long two and half years and we're ready to gather artists once again! 


Join us on July 28th at 7 pm EST at the Sanctuary of Sound for a book reading by Reem Abou-samra. She'll be reading from her latest book, Fractured: Between Truth and Lies, a collection of poems that speak to the complexity of stories and life. 


Our suggested ticket price is $10-$25. Please don't let this range stop you from paying less - or more!! At GAMA, we aim to support our artists as best as we can so that they are fairly compensated for their work and to show our love and appreciation for them! Guests will also have an opportunity to buy Reem's book at the event.


This is a family-friendly event that will take place outdoors. Light refreshments will be available. Bring your own blanket/pillow if you'd like to get cozy on the grass. In the case of rain, the event will move indoors and masking will be encouraged. 


--

Reem Abou-samra is a Muslim, Arab, second-generation Syrian-American. She is an activist, an oral historian, a spoken word artist, and a mother to two daughters.  She has a doctorate in Political Science and a Masters in Near Eastern Studies from Wayne State University in Detroit. She started writing poetry in third grade - and has been performing spoken word for over 18 years. She has been commissioned to perform at venues such as the Southfield Public Library's series Poets, Pages, and Scribes, the US Social Form at the Amphitheatre at Campus Martius in Detroit (2010), The Echoverse Poetry Series, the Charles H. Wright Museum's Malcolm X Celebration, and the Arab American National Museum. You can purchase Reem's poetry collection Fractured: Between Truth and Lies on sale through Amazon. Her upcoming book Just: enough will be released at the end of the year. If she is not taking a long walk or hike, stress-baking, or sitting in nature - you may see her performing by hitting up a local metro-Detroit open mic.


Fractured: Between Truth and Lies is a collection of poems that speak to the complexity of stories and life. Reem writes her poetry in order to speak her truth – while simultaneously questioning her own thoughts and life-experiences. The dialectical approach of her poetry – is a representation of the problematic binaries in the world: the yes and the no, the truth and the lies, the old and the new, the right and the wrong – and how life usually falls somewhere in between.
