The National - News - The Review - - Roundup -

This week­end finds the Abu Dhabi In­ter­na­tional Book Fair well into its stride. The pick of today’s cul­tural pro­gramme is a dis­cus­sion about the qual­ity of pub­lic art in ma­jor Arab cap­i­tals, which asks the ques­tion “Arab Sculp­ture: have we en­tered an age of kitsch?” from 11am, on the Dis­cus­sion Sofa. This year also marks the 10th an­niver­sary of the Al Mul­taqa Lit­er­ary Salon that runs an ex­tra­or­di­nary pro­gramme of speak­ers in less for­mal sur­round­ings. Lead­ing Chi­nese nov­el­ist Mai Jia will be speak­ing about the per­cep­tion of Ara­bic lit­er­a­ture in China, from 1 to 2pm today. For full listings of the pro­gram­ming, visit ad­book­
