Blue Metropolis: Orly Castel-Bloom’s An Egyptian Novel

Sat May 4, 2019 @ 13:00 - 14:00

Join us, Blue Metropolis, and local author and academic Ariela Freedmanfor a fascinating live interview and book signing with Orly Castel-Bloom, author of An Egyptian Novel.

About An Egyptian Novel: A three-time recipient of Israel’s Prime Minister’s Award, Orly Castel-Bloom fuses fact and fiction in this unconventional telling of her family’s story: their migration from Egypt to Israel, expulsion from a kibbutz, and life in modern-day Tel Aviv. An Egyptian Novel won the 2016 Sapir Prize, while Castel-Bloom’s earlier title, Dolly City, is included in UNESCO’s Collection of Representative Works.

This event is part of the Almemar Series of the Blue Metropolis Literary Festival. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance here.
