Between the lines
The annual Al Ain Book Fair ( AABF) is back for its eighth edition and is all about celebrating Emirati writers by hosting a group of writers from the UAE who will address the impact of the cultural and social environment on their intellectual upbringing. The fair takes place at the Al Ain Convention Centre and ends October 2. Visitors can enjoy meet- andgreet opportunities with important Emirati authors, who will also be giving away signed copies of their books. A variety of cultural programmes have been organised, with talks on various subjects including what young Emiratis read, and how educational technology can be used to resolve behavioural problems. The event is open from 9am to 1pm, and 5- 9pm on weekdays; and 5- 10pm on Friday. To register, visit www. adbookfair. com.
