Egyptian novelist Sonallah Ibrahim will be in conversation with Professor Noha Radwan from UC Davis and Professor Alexander Key in the Humanities Center Boardroom on Monday 6 May from 5:30 to 7:30pm.
Sonallah Ibrahim has been called "one of Egypt's most formally interesting and politically uncompromising writers", and he is making a rare visit to the West Coast to talk about his work and the Egyptian reality it describes.
