Knowledge in the ruins as Benghazi holds makeshift book fair

It took a few dozen chairs and some cushions placed on a broken-down sidewalk for the residents of Benghazi to hold a book fair, the latest sign that the once embattled city is slowly regaining normalcy. Civilians of all ages gathered at the makeshift fair organised to restore cultural life to the city that was once a bustling centre for arts and culture. Most of the books were Arabic translations of famous novels and short stories donated by residents from around the city. The destruction surrounding the alleyway where the event was held happened during the fighting between Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army and his mostly Islamist opponents.
