*Asala’s many authors and events, which you can find on their Facebook event page. For instance, the fabulous illustrator Daniel Georges! (They’re at stand A7.)
*Kalimat’s new releases, including آدم و أصدقاء ، جدتي و جدي—all of which I recommend. Also, meet award-winning YA novelist Fatima Sharafeddine and pick up a copy of فاتن; meet Shaima Albishtawi, author of the excellent new educational series آدم و أصدقاء; and I’m sure there are many others. Go to Stand C19.
*Award-winning and pioneer Arabic children’s book author Taghreed Najjar. Her Al-Salwa books is at Stand A14.
*Yuki Press at Stand J1, and the book signing on Dec. 11, from 4-6 p.m.
If you’re in Beirut, I’d love to know what else is around! I believe Bright Fingers said they’d also have a stall; if you’re interested in educational materials, you should visit. Their website doesn’t do them justice.
