Visuals by AMI from our book “Beirut Re-collected”.

Mashallah News, in collaboration with the designers from AMI published in March 2014 a book about Beirut, mixing narration and photography. “Beirut Re-Collected”, or in French “Beyrouth, chroniques et détours” was published by Tamyras, the Lebanese publishing house.

In Beirut Re-Collected, a new generation of writers and journalists pays tribute to the complexity of the Lebanese capital and to the destinies it has shaped. Through these recollections we wanted to preserve what the city is at risk of losing. 

The book is available in all libraries in Lebanon, as well as in some in France and Switzerland. It is also sold online, via Antoine Online.

After having launched the French version last week during the Paris book fair, Mashallah News invites you to the Beirut book launch which will take place on Thursday April 10, at Radio Beirut, in Mar Mikhael, from 6 to 10 pm. Both versions of the book will be available during the event. 

I have a short piece in this book. Excited to finally see it in print in a few days!
