The Middle East Institute is pleased to host Egyptian journalist Ashraf
Khalil for a discussion of his new book, Liberation Square: Inside the
Egyptian Revolution and the Rebirth of a Nation, and the political
landscape in Egypt on the first anniversary of the revolution. This
book is the first account of the Tahrir Square uprisings from someone
who was on the ground and witnessed the protests firsthand. Ashraf
Khalil will analyze the status quo in Egypt today and reasons for both
optimism and pessimism as the country enters its second year of the
post-Mubarak era.
