Ma3rad al kitaab 2007/ Book Fair 2007

Cairo will host its 39th International Annual Book Fair between January 23rd and February 4th. This years guest of honor at the fair will be Italy.

Look out for Swedish author/photographer Donald Boström who has translated his book Inshallah into Arabic and will be present at the book fair. The book elaborately covers the conflict in Palestine-Israel in photos and shorter articles from 1985 to the late 90's. It is probably one of few books that through the use of photography, gives the reader a clearer view of what really is going on.

I will be attending the fair and hopefully will be able to post pictures from it and I urge those of you who read Arabic to get your hands on this book and spread it amongst you.
