The Emirates LitFest began with a simple goal: to bring the best the literary world has to offer to the UAE, for local book lovers to enjoy. Over the last 15 years, the Festival has grown into the biggest celebration of books in the Arab World, earning recognition for its impact in promoting a culture of reading in the UAE, as well as its extensive educational outreach.

 

With 100+ authors attending each year, the Emirates LitFest is the must-attend literary event of the UAE’s social calendar. It’s where stories happen.
