A ‘LitFest,’ or a literary festival brings together people who love books, with the people who create them. Audiences of all ages come together for author talks, workshops, book signings and more.
Since it began in 2009, the Emirates LitFest has been connecting local book lovers with the best literary talent the world has to offer. The Festival’s programme now includes film screenings, themed dinners, and poetry performances. With 100+ authors in attendance each year, the Emirates LitFest is the biggest book festival in the Middle East and the must-attend literary event of the UAE’s social calendar.
The 2023 LitFest will take place from 1-6 February, with events split between the InterContinental Hotel in Festival City, and at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Library. So mark your calendars now!
