A Blind Date Can Be a Good Idea

Calling all bibliophiles! Multidisciplinary space Kave at Alserkal Avenue is hosting Blind Date with a Book tomorrow – and it's exactly as it sounds. Unlike blind dates that involve two humans (read: all about appearances), this community event is rooted in the phrase, "don't judge a book by its cover".

Here's how it works: you'll get a hand-wrapped book, carefully curated from a wide range of genres that is tagged with intriguing clues alluding to the contents inside. This curated collection includes everything from mystery, romance, classics, horror, adventure, science fiction, and more, featuring great books that readers may have missed or titles that didn't receive the publicity they deserved. Your experience will wrap up with a circle talk with other readers so that you can share your takeaways. It's a date!
