“In conjunction with our Brave Books: Bold Librarians, Readers & Booksellers of the Arab World children’s area feature, the Poetry Center is presenting a pop-up exhibit during the month of January featuring 21st century Arabic-language poetry in English translation. Pulled from the Poetry Center’s main stacks, these twenty-two books provide a varied and diverse look at poetry from across the Arabic-speaking world, with writers who hail from places including Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, and more. If you’re in Tucson, we invite you to come in to the Poetry Center to browse, read, and enjoy…

This pop-up exhibit was curated by Julie Swarstad Johnson with thanks to Khaled Mattawa for additional suggestions. Brave Books: Bold Librarians, Readers & Booksellers of the Arab World is presented with support from Arizona Humanities.”
