Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

لان لا مكتبات دون كتاب..... FOR THERE ARE NO Bookstores WITHOUT WRITERS
A few days TO GO
Don't tell me you didn't Know ...


WHAT?

Poems for those who still read is our first poetry collection.
A collection written over nearly a decade of a self-imposed exile,
between Tripoli, Paris, London, Berlin, India, Washington, New York, Beirut, back to Tripoli.
It retells the story of the intersection between my destiny and that of my nation, speaks of the place of the One in the Whole, the individual in the mass.

Poems for those who still read is a  poetry collection written in three languages ( not translated)  accompanied by  blunt sketches  addressing those issues that make our lives ...

WHY?

Because we believe in those who still read. That those who remain silent are not necessarily afraid but may be looking for their voice. Because we have no other choice but the good word when armies of obscurantists burn our every hope of being. Because it is exactly about this, about Being, fully, not just surviving the wave.

about splitting the sea not drowning in a drop.

How much?

7500 Dollars

the main sum will be allotted for the book production and the awards.
 the rest is to produce our launch/book signing which would be a concert with Live projections. 

Other ways to help?

Material support make the book a possibility but spreading the word, the good word is our bet. So share if you care. Share if you care...Share if you dare

_________________________________________

تركت لبنان منذ سنين عدة بحثا عن رقعة من حرية. حرية الخلق والصيرورة .
ظننتها تكون باريس حيث درست القانون المقارن و شرعت صياغة رسالة الدكتورا في حقوق الأنسان .
في عام 2006 وقد كانت لي مدونة في موقع اللوموند الفرنسي الشهير دعوت لمقاطعة اسرائيل والبضائع الأسرائيلية من منطلق أن الدولة العبرية كانت تبذل جهدها لتدمير لبنان. فتم أغلاق المدونة بعد أنذار تلقيته فنشرته.

لم يكن هذا الحدث منفرداً بل واحدا من سلسلة جعلتني أعيد النظر في مفاهيمي و بالتالي مشاريعي.ثابرت على الكتابة و قدمت نصوصي غناءا في محافل عدة من نيو يورك الى واشنطن الى باريس بعد أن سافرت الى الهند لادرس ما يعد هناك أقدم فن غنائي .

و قررت العودة الى لبنان مع الربيع العربي للعمل مع كبرى المنظمات الأنسانية لدعم اللاجئين السوريين في لبنان .

لكن وبعد عامين من العمل الدؤوب في اثنتين من كبرى المؤسسات الأنسانية تبين لى بما لا يدعو للشك أن الفساد يتسلل الى كل العناوين حتى الأنسانية منها وأن ثوابتي هي المثابرة على تحدي العدم والانكسار عبر توسيع أفاق العقل في الأخذ والعطاء...

" قصائد لمن يقرأ" هو عنوان الكتاب الذي سيرى النور بفضلكم .
عصارة تجربة ورسائل للنفس و عنها.
 دعمكم جزء من العمل. دعوة لليقظة الجماعية لأن نحتل الشوارع لا أن ندعها تحتلنا.
 قصائد ورسومات ...عن النفي الذاتي وأستحالة العودة ...

" أخرج من نفسك وعليها أصبح ثورة أنت الخالق والمخلوق أنت الدورة
______________

Une décennie de poèmes... sur un espace illimité..
Parce que le verbe libre, libère l'action.
Que l 'action avant d’être vers Tous, se doit de réveiller cet Être 
Que le beau est notre feu sacré qui dépasse notre mort inutile.
Soutenez Le Mot que vous choisissez au delà des miettes que l'on vous sert...
