Each year, the Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival (SCRF) welcomes world-renowned children’s authors from around the globe, talented illustrators who complement the written word with beautiful visuals and enthusiastic storytellers who bring the written word to life for young readers.
Storytellers are known as Hakawati in the Arab world and are oral storytellers who preserve the ancient art so popular throughout history in the Middle East.
Thinkers and Speakers:
The SCRF also welcomes thinkers and speakers from around the world to debate the most pressing topics pertinent to children’s literature.
SCRF appeals to the young and old, book lovers from all nationalities and anyone interested in the culture of children’s literature.
