WKND - - What's Hot - 30 SEPTEM­BER 2016

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.
