The UAE's Favourite Books – Emirates LitFest Launches Campaign to Find Them

18 Jun 2014

Emirates LitFest wants UAE readers to nominate their much-loved books in new campaign

Bookworms in the UAE, this one’s for you! The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature wants to know what books have inspired readers in their new campaign to find the UAE’s favourite books.

“Everyone has that one book that was life-changing and that they return to over and over again,” said Festival Director Isobel Abulhoul.  

The three-part campaign gives all readers the chance to participate and share their beloved stories with the UAE.

The first part is already online, and people can go nominate their favourites in both English and Arabic to help the Emirates LitFest create a base list of amazing books.

In the second phase, readers will be able to vote for their preferred books from the list.  The voting will be open until March 2015, and the winners will be announced during the next festival.

So, if you’ve read books that inspired you, go online and share now!
