Rising From Tahrir: Hoda Rashad was in Tahrir (Liberation) Square from the early days of the uprising. She wrote a non-political blog on the dramatic events that were taking place as they occurred and began working on this book shortly after President Mubarak abdicated his presidency in February of 2011. http://www.risingfromtahrir.com/
