Book Signing of Alexandria in a Cloud
The BA Alexandria and Mediterranean Research Center (Alex-Med) hosts on Thursday, 14 March 2013, the Book Signing Ceremony of Ibrahim Abd El-Meguid’s newest novel Alexandria in a Cloud (Al-Eskandareya fi Ghayma).
The novel is part of his Alexandria Trilogy. Set in the Alexandria of the 1970s, it depicts the onset of the war on progressive thinking, resulting in the city losing its signature cosmopolitan spirit, and the deterioration of the values of tolerance and freedom.
The first work of the trilogy was No One Sleeps in Alexandria, set during the Second World War, followed by Birds of Amber about the post 1956 Alexandria.
