I ran to the Nile
An evening with Egyptian writer Alaa al-Aswany

Alaa al-Aswany's critically acclaimed novel I Ran to the Nile is rooted in the Arab Spring - a period the author himself experienced among the crowd at the Tahrir Square in Cairo, and which he describes as one of the happiest moments of his life.

Meet the world-renowned author this evening where he'll introduce his new book, his views on the political development of the Arab world and why - despite all setbacks - he continues to believe in a democratic future that, not least, literature and authors are committed to fight for.

Host: Marc-Christoph Wagner.
