“You can’t understand Egypt without Mahfouz—without his characters, with whom every reader, Arab or not, can identify.”
—Tahar Ben Jelloun
We meet on Wednesday 24 October from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Center for Survivors of Torture and War Trauma (1077 South Newstead). Potluck dinner begins at 6, discussion at 6:45.
In February, we considered Nawal El Saadawi’s Memoirs from the Women’s Prison, in April, Ghassan Kanafani’s Men in the Sun & Other Palestinian Stories, and in July, Hanan Al-Shaykh’s The Story of Zahra.
