Moving to Cairo in the midst of the 2011 Arab Spring, Peter Hessler witnessed and recorded the revolution as a staff writer for The New Yorker. Drawing on Egypt’s rich ancient history and the contemporary stories from the locals he has befriended, Hessler will discuss the impact of the revolution on Egyptian culture, business, and politics at a Global Café Breakfast. He will address President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s rise to power and how he is different, but not necessarily better, than the rulers who preceded him. Hessler will also discuss the US-Egypt alliance, the struggling Egyptian economy, and the large, restless population of young people.
