Abdellatif Laâbi at The Mosaic Rooms
The Mosaic Rooms, London
Wednesday 20th February 2013 19:00

Prize-winning Moroccan poet, Abdellatif Laâbi will be joined by his translator, André Naffis-Sahely, to read from his newly published chapbook of poems and to launch his memoir, The Bottom of the Jar.

The Bottom of the Jar (published by Archipelago Books) is an exploration of Laâbi’s childhood city of Fez, Morocco, through Namoussa, his semi-fictional kindred spirit. The memoir is not only a personal account of Laâbi’s early years, but a work of great social and political import, one that reflects on and evokes the charged atmosphere during the final days of French colonial occupation of Morocco and its painful road to independence.
