Arab Writers Union Gets A Make-Over

From El-Ahram

[T]he union embarked on a joint venture with the Ministry of Youth, whereby the two organisation will be providing weekly cultural events to be held at the ministry’s headquarters, opposite the Zamalek Sporting Club. The event (the culture salon) aims at aquatinting young people with the works of distinguished writers. Last week’s salon hosted poet Abdel-Rahman Al-Abnoudi who read some of his most popular poems before a large audience.

The Arab Writers Union will be hosting a 30th anniversary of the union in November. Writers such as Adonis, Hanan al-Shaykh, and Mahmoud Darwish will be in attendance. I want to go. Badly.
