Friends of Robbins Library presents Egypt Past and Present: From the Inside Out
October 12, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for a public conversation with Michael Armanious, an Egyptian by birth and an Arlingtonian by choice. This conversation will cover a range of subjects, including how Egypt has changed in his lifetime and his relationship with the resuscitated Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which was inaugurated in 2002, approximately two millennia after the legendary destruction by fire of the original Library of Alexandria. As a very special treat, a senior delegation from the Bibliotheca Alexandrina will be in attendance at the event.
