The love of books connects us all! This year has been fantastic as we participated in the most anticipated literary events and festivals of the year, where we got to meet our amazing readers. This also presented a great opportunity for readers to find our best publications under one roof at amazing discounts. We’re truly thankful to all those who visited our stalls and stopped by. Without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the events we participated in.
Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival
The Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival is a centre for art and culture for all children. This year, the 13th edition of SCRF was held in May, and it was larger and better than ever before. The Sharjah ruler and member of the Supreme Council inaugurated the festival. This festival’s primary goal is to honour outstanding works of young adult literature.
The festival not only brings fun activities but also a range of educational workshops, shows and plays. By exposing kids to famous authors and writers, the events of the Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival hope to instil in them a love of reading.
Amman International Book Fair
Amman International Book Fair conducted its twentieth session of the exhibition from 1st September 2022. The book fair is a yearly host of elite Arab thinkers, intellectuals, and innovators from the whole Arab. This event brings together very well-known authors, publishers, and book lovers.
The fair, organized by the Union of Jordanian Publishers in cooperation with the Culture Ministry and the Greater Amman Municipality, is held under the theme “Jerusalem, the Capital of Palestine.” Hundreds of local and international publishing houses from across the globe are attracted to this year’s book fair, with Kuwait as the guest of honour.
Riyadh International Book Fair
The capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh, hosts the annual Riyadh International Book Fair. It offers a forum for businesses, organisations, and people with an interest in books and the publishing industry to display their products and services. The fair aims to promote reading habits and skills and to increase knowledge of culture, literature, and arts. Additionally, it encourages people to visit, buy books, and go to conferences, workshops, and seminars about literature, art, and culture.
The Riyadh International Book Fair has developed a reputation as a significant event in the Arab intellectual scene since its founding, which occurred roughly 40 years ago. In terms of attendance, sales, and the number of authors participating, it is one of the top Arab book fairs.
We had an amazing audience at all the events, and we loved participating in these events and meeting you all. Fans had a great time at the meet and greet events with the authors as they got their copies signed by them at our stalls.
We’ll see you all next year!
