Last spring, Tulane University Libraries (TUL) launched The Lunch Tray Series, a lunch time poetry reading and discussion event series, starting with poets Karisma Price and Tiana Nobile. This month, TUL is honored to host Bouchaib Gadir for the third Lunch Tray Series: Noontime Poetry at the Library event on Friday, August 27, 2021 at 12pm. Bouchaib Gadir will read his own poetry and then engage with attendees in a Q&A session. Jonathan Morton, Associate Professor of French at Tulane, will be reading the translated poems in English.

More about Bouchaib Gadir:

Dr. Bouchaib Gadir is a professor at Tulane University and an American poet from Moroccan descent. His poems "tell stories about immigrants, displaced and marginalized, in New Orleans, Spain, and France... [and] display of mixed emotion, loneliness, and marginalization felt by migrants with a sense of belonging to a host land or to their native cultures."
