CAIRO – 12 January 2018: The American University in Cairo recently opened a bookstore in the Egyptian Museum.
This bookstore is considered a part of the Egyptian Heritage exhibition, marking the 115th anniversary of the Museum. “AUC Press and Bookstores regularly take part in events and book fairs, but this is a unique and excellent initiative by the Ministry of Antiquities,” said Nigel-Fletcher Jones, director of AUC Press and Bookstores in an AUC press release.
AUC Press regularly publishes guides to the Egyptian Museum in different languages and the stores also have a collection of Egyptology books for all ages and levels of readers, as well as some books on Egyptian culture, including crafts and cookery.
“Many visitors to Cairo are here on a short, almost whistle-stop tour, so this may be one of a few rare moments when they are able to see the huge range of high quality books AUC Press has to offer.”
The exhibition will run until February. It is expected that AUC Press will continue to be part of the museum store after the exhibition ends.
AUC Bookstores will participate in the Cairo International Book Fair, which is scheduled to kick off on January 27. This edition of the fair will contain big offers on AUC Press titles, among a huge selection of imported books and an even wider selection of children’s educational books.
