Description

Just World Educational, Holly Maguigan and Abdeen Jabara invite you to a

Book Party for Algerian National-Liberation Heroine

Zohra Drif

on Thurs., Sept. 14, 6:00 - 8:30 pm

at 240 E. Houston St. Apt 2c, New York.

Mme. Drif, who is a recently retired Vice-President of the Algerian Senate, will discuss themes from her memoir Inside the Battle of Algiers: Memoir of a Woman Freedom Fighter, which is being released by Just World Books on September 1.

Light refreshments will be served. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing. Pre-registration via this Eventbrite page is requested.

Inside the Battle of Algiers has been translated from the French original by Andrew Farrand (who will be accompanying Mme. Drif.) The book has a powerful Foreword by international diplomatist Lakhdar Brahimi.

Vijay Prashad writes of Mme. Drif and the book: "Zohra Drif is a living legend of the Algerian freedom movement... This is one of the most engaging memoirs to come out of the period of decolonization."

You can read the many plaudits the book has received, here.
