Caroline hosts the return, after so many adventures (Egypt, Hurricanes, Texas!) of Egyptian poet-aphorism maestro Yahia Lababidi: “Salvation lies on the other side of danger.”
“Egyptian-American thinker, poet and author of 7 books in 4 genres, Yahia Lababidi’s forthcoming book, Where Epics Fail, was featured on PBS NewsHour and is generously endorsed by Obama’s inaugural poet, Richard Blanco. Epics is to be published by Unbound (UK), in partnership with Penguin Random House and is currently available for pre-order. Prior to that, Lababidi’s Balancing Acts: New & Selected Poems (1993-2015) debuted at #1 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases. His work has appeared on NPR, Best American Poetry, AGNI, World Literature Today, On Being with Krista Tippett and Lababidi has participated in international poetry festivals throughout the USA, Eastern Europe, as well as the Middle East. Twice nominated for a Pushcart Prize, his writing has been translated into several languages, including Arabic, Hebrew, Slovak, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Dutch, and Swedish.” [Bio from Poets&Writers]
