Book Club

6 July @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Welcome to our very first book club, in collaboration with Soma Nami Bookstore! For the month of June, our book club pick is “If An Egyptian Cannot Speak English” by Noor Naga.

In the aftermath of the Arab Spring, an Egyptian American woman and a man from the village of Shobrakheit meet at a café in Cairo. He was a photographer of the revolution, but now finds himself unemployed and addicted to cocaine, living in a rooftop shack. She is a nostalgic daughter of immigrants “returning” to a country she’s never been to before, teaching English and living in a light-filled flat with balconies on all sides. They fall in love and he moves in.  In our globalized twenty-first-century world, what are the new faces (and races) of empire? When the revolution fails, how long can someone survive the disappointment? Who suffers and, more crucially, who gets to tell about it?

Click here to order your copy of the book for delivery from Soma Nami. Space is limited for this free meetup, so please click below to RSVP.

Book club will be held at our retail location at 3.2 Farasi Lane, Lower Kabete, off Ngecha Rd. Look for the colorful flower gate behind Kabete Junior Academy School.
