Peter Hessler -- "The Buried"

Peter Hessler will speak about and sign his new book, The Buried: An Archaeology of the Egyptian Revolution, on Thursday, May 16th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
Peter Hessler moved with his wife and twin daughters to Cairo in 2011. Not long before he arrived, the Egyptian Arab Spring had begun, and now the country was in chaos. Through the lives of ordinary people and through connections between contemporary Egypt and its ancient past, Hessler creates an astonishing portrait of a country and its people. The Buried is the story of a land in which a weak state has collapsed but its underlying society remains in many ways painfully the same.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
