Born in New York City to Libyan parents and raised in Tripoli and Cairo, Hisham Matar’s father, once a United Nations diplomat, was kidnapped in Cairo in 1990, managed to have two letters smuggled out of a Libyan prison in 1996, and was last seen alive in 2002. Matar now lives in London and is an associate professor at Barnard College in New York City. At this event, Mr. Matar will speak about his career as an author.
