Sharjah International Book Fair

Literature in Sharjah

This major book fair, held over 11 days, has been bringing together publishers, authors and translators since 1982 in presenting the latest tomes in Arabic, English and other languages. Plenty of cultural events – author talks, seminars on current issues, poetry recitations – and a children's programme with creative workshops and theatre, make this book fair much more than a publisher get-together.
