'On Literature And Philosophy' Book Launch: Banipal and Gingko Library will hold an event to launch the book 'On Literature and Philosophy' by the late Nobel laureate Naguib Mafouz. It is the first volume of a series of his non-fiction works in English translation. Mahfouz scholar Professor Rasheed El-Enany will give a talk about Naguib and the series. To note, the Gingko Library promotes and facilitates dialogue between the Middle East and the Western world through academic conferences, public events and scholarly publications. In the face of an increasingly virulent divide between East and West, it enables constructive, informed and open discussion, giving a voice to a new generation of thinkers and opinion formers. Taking place on 20 July, 2016 at Book Haus, 70 Cadogan Place, London SW1X 9AH. This is a free event but places are limited, so you need to RSVP as soon as possible at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
