This event has already taken place.

Host: Edinburgh International Book Festival
Location: Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, EH2 4HQ
Speaker: Ahdaf Soueif, Kate Green

Can a people’s revolution that’s democratic, inclusive and peaceable succeed? That’s the question asked by the eminent Egyptian writer Ahdaf Soueif in her profoundly affecting memoir, Cairo: My City, Our Revolution. In it, she charts the uprising as it unfolded in Cairo last year. ‘This book is not a record of an event that’s over’, she explains. Here, she discusses a revolution that Egypt is still living through. Chaired by Kate Green.
