Also, on Saturday, May 11, Kotob Khan will have the grand opening of its new Degla – Maadi branch. The Laselky Street branch of Kotob Khan remains open, but owner and publisher Karam Youssef said it will be primarily for book sales, and events will now be held at the Degla store.

The grand-opening festivities will begin at 7 p.m., and will include a concert by Bikya. The new shop is at 13, Road 254, across from the Shell Shop and beside the Samia Alouba gym (map here).

A few images as construction was still ongoing:
