Midnight in Cairo by Raphael Cormack: Live Reading & Conversation

Mar 21, 2021 - Mar 21, 2021 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Virtual Event by City of Asylum

Author Raphael Cormack’s newest work Midnight in Cairo, is a vibrant portrait of the talented and entrepreneurial women who defined an era in one of the world’s most multicultural cities, twentieth-century Cairo. Buffeted by crosswinds of colonialism and nationalism, conservatism and liberalism, “religious” and “secular” values, patriarchy and feminism, this new generation of ‘celebrities’ offered a new vision for women in Egypt and throughout the Middle East, unveiling the rich histories of independent, enterprising women in a time marked by excess and unheard-of freedom of expression. Raphael Cormack will be joined in conversation by award winning Egyptian choreographer and composer Adham Hafez for a live discussion and audience Q&A. This program is in proud partnership with W. W. Norton & Company.
