A Bookshop in Algiers

A Bookshop in Algiers Kaouther Adimi ; Chris Andrews

In 1936, a young dreamer named Edmond Charlot opened a modest bookshop in Algiers. Fast-forward to 2017 and young Ryad arrives at Charlot's beloved bookshop. Once the heart of Algerian cultural life, where Camus launched his first book and the Free French printed propaganda during the war, it has been closed for decades, living on as a government lending library. Now it is to be shuttered forever. But as Ryad empties it of its books, he begins to understand that a bookshop can be much more than just a shop that sells books. A Bookshop in Algiers charts the changing fortunes of Charlot's bookshop through the political drama of Algeria's turbulent twentieth century of war, revolution and independence. It is a moving celebration of books, bookshops, and of those who dare to dream.
