To the Editor
Since it was impossible for me to attend the Festival, I especially appreciated Jahed Ahmed’s vivid review of the event. Hassanal Abdullah continues to pursue and develop his literary dreams as he cultivates a place for Shabdaguchha and Bengali poetry on the New York poetry scene. Long may he thrive! Stanley H. Barkan, poet and publisher of Cross-Cultural Communications, remains a faithful friend. With warmest congratulations on this accomplishment,
D. H. Melhem, Ph.D.
It was a very interesting event you hosted on Saturday in honor of the Bengali New Year! I only wish I could have understood some of the poetry read aloud.
Your wife is a sensitive colorful poet in her own right. I enjoyed her reading.
Cheers and all good wishes,
Mary Beth Shanahan
