Join us for a lively discussion on the best selling Arabic Language book, Yacoubian Building By Alaa Al Aswany. It was considered a literary achievement by the New York Times Book Review, which stated: "Alaa Al Aswany has conjured a bewitching political novel of contemporary Cairo that is also an engagé novel about sex, a romantic novel about power and a comic yet sympathetic novel about the vagaries of the human heart."
This discussion will be held in Arabic. Moderators are Ms. Manal Stephan and Dr. Hashem Sherif.
Books are available at the Headquarters' circulation desk.
