Jean Naggar, author of Sipping from the Nile, my Exodus from Egypt.
In her memoirs, Naggar recalls the lost world of her childhood as daughter of two prominent Sephardic Jewish families, a world that came to a dramatic end in 1956 with the Suez Crisis that scattered the Jewish population of Egypt far and wide. Sipping from the Nile was a finalist in the 2012 International Book Awards in both the memoir and narrative nonfiction categories.
