Tripoli, 30 January 2014:
Tripoli’s Art House hosted an evening of poetry featuring Libyan poet Ashour Atweebi this week.
Atweebi read . . .[restrict]from his most recent collection of prose poems, Palm not Wait Long, to friends and fans, in celebration of the publication of the second edition printed by Zawia-based Arkino. After the reading, he signed copies of his book.
Palm is his fourth book. His first collection, Porch Poems, was published in 1993. In 2002 another collection of verse, Your Friends have Passed through Here and his novel Drdanin were published. Last year he published two poetry books, Nuggets and Palm not Wait Long.
One member of the audience, Ahmed Lazraq, said the Art House was one of his favourite places in Tripoli, as it was one of the only places in the capital that provided an opportunity to be in artistic surroundings and around intellectual people. [/restrict]
