Reflections on Revolutionary Egypt
Poet and nonfiction writer Andy Young, who has been living in Cairo for the past two years, will read from her poems and essays reflecting on revolutionary Egypt
and share some of her photographs of the street art that reflects the state of resistance on the streets of Cairo.
Andy Young’s first full-length poetry, collection, All Night it is Morning, is forthcoming from Dialogos Press. Based in New Orleans, she has been working at the American University of Cairo since 2012, but will return to New Orleans Center for Creative Arts this fall. Her translations, essays, and poetry have been published in places such as Los Angeles Review of Books, Callaloo, Guernica, and the Norton anthology Language for a New Century as well as in flamenco plays, a Paul Chan project at the New Museum, and on Public Radio International’s “The World.”
