This November reading group we’ll be in Egypt with the novel Woman At Point Zero by Nawal El-Saadawi. This is a remarkable story about rebellion against a society founded on lies, oppression, brutality, and hypocrisy. Saadawi writes with passion and directness that indicts society’s brutal treatment of women. Nawal El-Saadawi is a world renowned writer and activist for women’s freedom. In 1996, Saadawi received an honorary doctorate from the University of St Andrews.

The Literary Odyssey reading group is all about discovering and discussing translated fiction from writers all over the world.  If you’re a fan of great literary fiction please come along, we always welcome new faces and opinions!
