Emirates Airline Festival of Literature Commemorative 10th Anniversary Book
The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, one of the Arab World’s most beloved literary events, will be commemorating its 10th anniversary with the publication of a limited-edition book. For the Love of Words, published by Dubai-based Motivate Publishing, will be launched at the opening ceremony of the upcoming Festival, to be held from 1-10 March 2018.
At the pre-Festival press conference, Isobel Abulhoul, OBE, CEO and Trustee of the Emirates Literature Foundation and Director of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature said, ‘The Festival has grown from strength to strength with each passing year and everyone involved – authors, visitors, sponsors, students, team members and volunteers – have taken away the most delightful memories. To capture the spirit of our journey over that time what better way than with a book that any book lover would treasure?’
For the Love of Words features eighty-four inspirational voices – authors, speakers, illustrators, and poets – that have been a part of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature over the years. The anthology is a collection of articles, poems, short stories and illustrations that celebrate the love of words.
For the Love of Words will be available at the Festival venue, InterContinental, Dubai Festival City and in bookstores across the UAE.
