READINGS: You Have Not Yet Been Defeated

June18 at Tompkins Square Park in ,


In 2011, blogger Alaa Abd El-Fattah’s animated writing and activism fused his politics and technological acumen, making him one of the Egyptian Revolution’s leading youth voices. Abd El-Fattah has spent much of the last decade in Egyptian prisons  in an attempt to silence him… Yet, Abd El-Fattah continues to write. Last year, Seven Stories Press published his anthologized writings in translation in the anthology, You Have Not Yet Been Defeated.

Join us this June 18 in the East Village for a reading of You Have Not Yet Been Defeated in a day-long, outdoor community event from 10 AM to 7:30 PM to stand in solidarity with Alaa (who is currently on hunger strike), and his cause.
