The Great Cairo Library in Zamalek will host the launch of Eriter Hamdy Rizk's latest book "Kiralayson ... in love of the Copts."

The event will be held at the library Sunday, 21 January, at 6:00pm with a large audience of Muslim clerics and Coptic priests alongside writers and intellectuals and statesmen, including Minister of Religious Affairs Mokhtar Gomaa, former Minister of Culture Helmy Namam, head of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina Mostafa El-Fiki, and president of Cairo University, Mohamed Osman El-Khosht.

Discussion of the book will be chaired by renowned TV host Mofeed Fawzi.

The book is published by Rose El-Youssef Foundation.

The writer documents the status of Copts in Egypt between 2011 and 2018.

In January 2011, a major Coptic church in Alexandria was the target of a bombing. In January 2018, the largest Coptic cathedral was opened in Egypt's new administrative capital.
