The Pocketknife Bible: The Poems and Art of Anis Mojgani








Join us this evening for two time National Poetry Slam Champion and speaker as he presents his newest collection of poetry and art published by Austin’s very own Write Bloody Publishing. Mojgani’s poetry engages and ties the mind and the heart together and pulls till the body is in it’s original fetal position. Tonight’s a special evening and we’re in for a Write Bloody great time!


What if your future life came to you as a child in dreams? What if you wrote down those dreams in words and pictures, in the language we spoke as children but forgot once grown? What if as an adult you unearthed this book of dreams and prophecy from your past and translated them out of that long lost tongue into poems that those now grown could understand? The upcoming book from Anis Mojgani, The Pocketknife Bible, seeks to answer those questions through the author's poems and pictures, being the bridge between a grown-up book for children and a children's picture book for adults.


Anis Mojgani is a two time National Poetry Slam Champion and winner of the International World Cup Poetry Slam. A TEDx Speaker and former resident of the Oregon Literary Arts Writers-In-The-Schools program, Anis has performed at numerous universities, festivals, and venues around the globe and has performed for audiences as varied as the House of Blues and the United Nations. His work has appeared on HBO, NPR, and in the pages of such journals as Rattle, Forklift Ohio, Used Furniture Review, and Thrush.
