Cairo’s Literary Bookstores and Publishers–On A Map!

A new website–CairoBookStop–has been launched that lists, describes, and maps publishing houses and high-quality bookstores in Cairo (particularly those that focus on contemporary Arabic literature). It is currently in English, but will soon be making its way into Arabic.

The site was created by Nancy Linthicum, a scholar, and Michele Henjum, a translator, who met in Cairo while participating in the language program, Center for Arabic Study Abroad. Read an interview with them over at our favorite Cairo-based blog, Arabic Literature (in English).
