The 8th Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, a two-week celebration of the written and spoken word, is being held in Dubai from the 1st to the 12th of March, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The official opening was on Tuesday, the 8th of March.

The festival, the largest of its kind in the region, welcomes more than 140 authors, poets and speakers all under one roof to enrich and enlighten audiences of all age groups.

Numerous events for kids have been lined up, which could take them into the world of letters, art, drama, and fantasy. The most sought after is Jim Kay’s “A Muggle’s–eye view of Harry Potter”, Lauren Child’s talk about Charlie and Lola, and the “Once Upon a Time Tea Parties” where children are invited to attend dressed as their favorite character, and served scrumptious tea, cakes and cookies and sandwiches and excitement!
