We have got an exciting news for the literature lovers! British chat show hosts Richard and Judy as well as former ballet star and Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell are among the writers heading to Emirates Airline Festival of Literature in Dubai.
The TV couple are expected to promote their popular Book Club, while Darcey Bussell has written a series of children’s books.
Other guests will include Andrew Motion, Tim Rice and Joanne Harris. More than 100 authors from 24 countries will be part of the event. New for 2014 is Literary Idol where a panel of experts critique writers’ unpublished work. The theme for 2014 is Metamorphosi.
These kind of literary festivals are welcomed across UAE by the readers as well as non-readers who pay visit to these events just for the sake of entertainment but get something useful out of it.
