Lovers of the written word rejoice! The Sharjah International Book Fair is back from November 4-14. One of the largest celebrations of literature in the UAE and around the globe, this year’s book fair is quite different from the ones before it.
This year’s event - themed, ‘The World Reads From Sharjah’ will see book lovers from all over the UAE come down to Expo Centre Sharjah to grab copies of their favourite books. So without further ado, here are 3 things you should know about this year’s SIBF!
It’s both a digital and physical event
Want to buy books? Head on down to Expo Centre Sharjah for rows upon rows of stalls from Arab and international publishers. If you’re more about meeting and listening to famous authors speak about their craft, lectures and workshops will be held online!
