Big Book Launch Party
Here are some photographs from the Benghazi Voices 4 Libya Book Release Party. The Book Release Party took place at Dawa Islamiya in Benghazi on May 30th. It was attended by most of the Libyan book authors and their guests. Each of the authors was presented their complimentary copy of the book to a standing ovation of the media, dignitaries and special guests attending the event. By all accounts, the event was a smashing success.
