Mona Prince signing copies of her new book, "So You May See," trans. Raphael Cohen. Her table was next to Khairy Shalaby's, whose "The Hashish Waiter" is now out, trans. Adam Talib.
Mia Gröndahl, the photographer behind "Tahrir Square: The Heart of the Egyptian Revolution," talks about her book. When she first entered Tahrir, she said, her camera was seized.

She talked about the unique nature of the Tahrir experience and how that informed her photos.
Karima Khalil shows slides from her "Messages from Tahrir: Signs from Egypt's Revolution " and talks (briefly) with Al Jazeera English's Ayman Mohyeldin. Very moving, and sometimes funny, photographs.
