In her memoir "Sipping from the Nile, My Exodus from Egypt", Jean Naggar recalls the lost world of her childhood as daughter of two prominent Sephardic Jewish families, a world that came to a dramatic end in 1956 with the Suez Canal Crisis that scattered the Jewish population of Egypt far and wide.

"Sipping from the Nile" was a finalist in the 2012 International Book Awards in both the memoir and narrative nonfiction categories.

Introduction by Marie-Pierre Ulloa, Associate Director, Jewish Studies & Lecturer in French, Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages, Stanford University.
