Interview with Moheb Soliman, "HOMES" release & Peter White Library Reading 9/23

Moheb Soliman's debut book of poetry called "HOMES" guides us through the Upper Great Lakes region through over a decade's worth of travel and immersion.

If you've lived in Egypt and the Midwest, your perspective on the Upper Great Lakes region would be much different than a native Yooper.

"HOMES" is the debut book of poetry from multidisciplinary artist Moheb Soliman, published by Coffee House Press. He travelled the shoreline of the Great Lakes twice since 2007, and with his second journey (and a Joyce Foundation fellowship), he connected with organizations and communities to work on programming and different kinds of work (see a preview of his collection of photos, text and more as a part of this fellowship below).

As a part of the book publishing tour of "HOMES," Moheb will be reading poetry at Peter White Public Library, Thursday Sept. 23rd, 2021 at 6:30pm ET. Along with Peter White Library, the NMU English Department hosts this evening of readings, and he will be joined by Patricia Killilea, Beth Roberts, and Olivia Kingery.

"HOMES" is available now through Coffee House Press.
