The Papers Club Casablanca hosted last Saturday the signing of “Ben Toumert ou les derniers jours des voilés”, the latest work by Mouna Hachim, published by La Croisée des Chemins editions.

A large audience made showed up this Saturday to discuss  Mouna Hachim’s latest novel. The meeting moderated by Hafsa Bekri-Lamrani, poet, writer, and professor of English literature gave rise to very interesting exchanges while allowing to highlight the character as charismatic as formidable as was Ben Toumert.

In this medieval fresco that is sometimes political, intimate, or spiritual, in this whirlwind that takes us from Marrakech to Tinmel via Zagora, the women, also present, play an unexpected and overwhelming role.
