Emirates LitFest on the Radio
Talking of Books
Talking of Books is a weekly review show which showcases some of Dubai’s most intrepid readers. Every week co-hosts Isobel Abulhoul and John MacDonald are joined by an ever-changing cast of guest reviewers drawn from the UAE’s reading community, to discuss to discuss the Book of the Week. Young reviewers are invited to share their thoughts on children’s literature and a Book Champion introduces Dubai to a book they think is particularly significant and should be more widely read.
You can hear some of the previous interviews on our radio archive.
