Abdullah Al-Jumah, author of 'Tales of a Saudi in Europe' - (حكايا سعودي في أوروبا) will be a guest speaker on several panel sessions at the Emirates International Festival of Literature in Dubai next month.
Al Jumah is scheduled to speak in a panel entitled 'Breaking New Ground' in which the panelists, including Kamal abdel-Malek and Lulwa Al Mansouri, will discuss breaking new grounds in Arab Literature writing.
Al Jumah will also share a panel with authors Talal Salem Al Sabri and Nasir Al Dhaheri, all of whom share the passion for travel writing with Al Jumah. The panelists will discuss the various writing styles and techniques they adopted for their books and how they feel about modern day travel writing and its space and appeal in today's market.
His book 'Tales of a Saudi in Europe' talks about his adventures travelling in Europe and his boarding experiences in various hostels along the way. I found it to be charismatic writing; fresh and light-hearted.
Book is in Arabic only & sold at Virgin Megastores.
