A live performance was held on the side lines of the press conference, supervised by Emirati actor Abdullah Abu Aabed, which focused on the role of family in encouraging  reading and emphasised the importance of the family as the child’s ‘first school’. The goal of the show was to deliver the message that instilling the love of reading in the hearts of children must be undertaken by families first and that taking care to invest in a home library is a major contributor to developing a long lasting love of reading among children.

Ahmed bin Rakkad Al Ameri, Director of Sharjah International Book Fair, said: “Following months of dedicated efforts and impressive cultural tours around the world, we can say that preparations are in full swing to open the 32nd Sharjah International Book Fair. The continuous successes and rising popularity that SIBF is gaining would not have been possible without the unlimited support of His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, whose directives serve as guiding reference that we use to enable the event to maintain this high ranking position.”

We are confident that these surprises will be well received by the public and will contribute to further developing the Fair and its role in supporting cultural life in Sharjah and preserving the Emirate’s identity.”
