Tuesday, February 18th at 5pm.

 

Literary agent and writer Jean Naggar, will be joining us in person to discuss her novel, "Footprints on the Heart" (available in paperback from Amazon). Her new novel recounts the life of a village girl from outside Cairo who is adopted by an American couple and the extraordinary events that happened to her.

"An absorbing, sweeping historical saga of love, loss and redemption. Naggar's vividly-drawn characters begin their difficult but ultimately deeply rewarding journeys in Nasser's Egypt in 1956, finding their way to personal and professional success in fashion and finance post-9/11 New York". (Amazon review)
