Sharjah International Book Fair

Book lovers can rejoice, as the Sharjah International Book Fair has announced the dates for its 41st edition. The festival will take place at the Expo Centre Sharjah from November 2 to November 13.

This year's guest of honor is Italy, and the event theme is "spread the word," which organizers say encourages guests to "believe in the power of words when it comes to building bridges of cultural communication."

"We want to convey with this slogan that words are not written to be hidden between book covers." "Words are at the heart of all creative endeavors, and indeed, everything we do," said Khoula Al Mujaini, general coordinator of the Sharjah International Book Fair.

The events will include talks, workshops, and 80 performances of theatre, dance, and music. The fair will also include a cooking section, as well as sections for designers and artists of various ages. Expect talks, workshops, and performances of theatre, dance, and music. There will also be numerous book stalls. The festival lineup for this year has yet to be announced.

SIBF is a living manifestation of Sharjah's ambitions, which began more than 50 years ago, to present to the world one of the most successful and pioneering development projects in the region and the world — one based on investing in culture and human capital development; one that goes beyond libraries and creative events, authors, intellectuals, and poets to influence and shape other key sectors of a nation and the world "said Sharjah Book Authority chairman Ahmed bin Rakkad Al Ameri.

"A nation's identity is shaped by books. Books are economic engines; they are change agents and development tools. Without them, no advances in knowledge, science, or investment can be made."
