BAW Book Group October 2019 Title: The Last Watchman of Old Cairo by Michael David Lukas

In this “wonderfully rich” (San Francisco Chronicle) novel, a young man journeys from California to Cairo to unravel centuries-old family secrets.

The Last Watchman of Old Cairo is a moving page-turner of a novel from acclaimed storyteller Michael David Lukas. This tightly woven multigenerational tale illuminates the tensions that have torn communities apart and the unlikely forces — potent magic, forbidden love — that boldly attempt to bridge that divide.
