Dear Bookworms,

We are back! Let's carry on from where have left off, with what originally would have been our April event, Arabic literature.
This year, we have started reading books from Nobel Prize winners.

Naguib Mahfouz, an Egyptian novelist, playwright and screenwriter, became the first Arabic writer to win the Nobel prize in literature in Protected content .

You may read any book you like from this genre and share your impressions when you join us.

Perhaps the most popular book is Amin Maalouf's "Samarkand". At Amazon you may find it, for instance, under:
Protected content

We will meet in Protected content im Schottenstift, it has a nice garden so the weather permitting we can sit outside.

Look forward to seeing you again soon!
