Sharjah Book Authority launches online book club

Book clubs are amazing, whether you’re chatting about the latest chick lit or something far more serious.

And now you can take your discussions to the next level thanks to the Sharjah Book Authority’s (SBA) new online book club.

The book club will see a number of renowned authors take part in a series of live and interactive book discussions over Zoom.

Kicking off on Thursday July 2 at 7pm, the first session will see New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder discussing his mystery thriller House of Fire.

Moderated by Emirati author Eman Al Yousef, the discussions will take place once a fortnight.

Khoula Al Mujaini, director of fairs and festivals at SBA, said, "As we go through stressful times exacerbated by our inability to socialise the way we did before the COVID-19 outbreak, communal activities like book discussions go a long way in instilling hope and positivity.

“Staying true to our commitment to continue enriching people’s lives with the fascinating world of stories, SBA is launching its online Book Club to bring renowned authors and book lovers together on one vibrant platform, which will enable engaging literary discussions, a free exchange of ideas and opinions, and open windows to new cultural and human perspectives.”
