Lodève (5): Souad Salem

Here a video of Libyan poet Souad Salem reading one of her works. I should have a translation of the poem up tomorrow. The festival’s poet’s bio-notes gives only this: “Born in Tripoli (Libya) in 1966, she has a Masters in Economics & is assistant chief-editor of the magazine “The House.” She contributes regularly to a range of Arab newspapers and magazines and is active in the Women’s Rights movement. She has published two collections of poetry,  Toasted Coffeee (2003), I’m only Chance (2004), and a volume od selected essays called Wanderings (2008).”
