Feb 25th 7:30pm: Book discussion (Taxi by Khaled el-Khameesy) @ Kotob Khan, I have also heard how good this book was, I hope that I can read it soon.
Feb 27th 7:00pm: Book discussion (The Committee by Sonallah Ibrahim) @ Kotob Khan (arranged by CBOOKC). GREAT GREAT book. The committee is one of those books that you’d stay speechless for 5 minutes after turning the last page. It talks about a guy going for an interview with a ‘committee’, they ask him all sorts of question and the weirdest research about “ألمع شخصية في الوطن العربي” !! Throughout the novel, there are socio-political conversations that would open ur eyes to issues from different angels, all of this in a mysterious atmosphere. Very recommended.
