New Blog, Lire Le Livre, Explores Arabic Children’s Lit!

There’s a new blog exploring Arabic children’s literature, written in French and in Arabic. Author Mathilde Chevre, who is doing her doctorate on Arabic children’s literature (directed by leading Arabic-French translator Richard Jacquemond), wrote her initial and very thoughtful posts on the wonderful Lebanese children’s-book author Samah Idris.

A must-read for Arabic children’s-lit professionals and interested amateurs. Insha’allah it will be updated frequently.

According to the blog’s very accomplished  author, Mathilde Chevre, this blog is:

“Lire le livre” (Read the Book) is a research blog on children’s literature in the Arab countries. You are invited to enter into a “boutique koutoub” where people speak French and Arabic, where we discuss politics and the struggle for the Palestinian cause, which is converse of the time of childhood, language, and a publishing history, which retains only the memory of the pioneers of history.

      Unfortunately, I don’t read French. Lire Le Livre has the benefit of being half in Arabic. But I will try to make sense of Takam Tikou just because your photo is on the front page!
