Please join us at an event at London Book Fair being organised by the Sheikh Zayed Book Award on Wednesday 13th March from 11.00-11.30am.

The Sheikh Zayed Book Award is one of the Arab World’s most prestigious and well-funded prizes, and honours the outstanding achievements of innovators and thinkers in literature, the arts and humanities in Arabic and other languages.  Translation funding is available for the books that have been awarded the Sheikh Zayed Book Award for Best Literature, and Best Children’s Literature.

The shortlists for 3 of the key categories in the running for the 2019 awards were announced on 11th February.

Porter Anderson, Editor-in-Chief of Publishing Perspectives, will be discussing ‘Arabic Literature Today’ with the editorial manager of Hachette-Antoine (Beirut), Rana Hayek, and it should be a fascinating event.
