The Emirates Literature Foundation’s monthly fiction reading club met at Magrudy’s Mall in Jumeirah last week. This time, they talked about ‘The Book of Eternal Things’, a novel by Aanchal Malhotra.

The gathering brought together aspiring writers, people looking for a break from excessive screen time, and those who attended based on glowing referrals. Yasameen Firas, the foundation’s production manager and liaison, led a candid conversation with a welcoming group of ten people. They openly shared their personal connections to the novel and offered praise and constructive feedback.

Malhotra’s novel, focusing on the independence and partition of the Indian subcontinent into India and Pakistan in 1947, provided a platform for socially and culturally informed conversations between people of diverse backgrounds, reflecting the multicultural tapestry of Dubai. However, this was just one of many meetings, each reflecting the rich diversity of the UAE. The book club’s history has been marked by numerous thought-provoking discussions and memorable book selections.

The Foundation Book Club caters to fiction enthusiasts, while the Emirates Literature Foundation offers more options such as the quarterly non-fiction ‘A Matter of Fact’, reading clubs for children and young people and the ‘Connecting Minds Book Club’, which explores sustainability and Climate Action Stories.

These book clubs have grown alongside the Emirates Literature Festival, becoming a year-round platform for book lovers to meet and discuss. Attendance typically ranges from five to 20 people, making each book club an enriching experience for those who appreciate the written word.

The Emirates Literature Foundation expands its cultural influence through various initiatives, including the School Librarian of the Year Award, educational programs, creative writing courses, and the Emirates Literature Festival, an annual gathering of literature enthusiasts and renowned authors from around the world, uniting readers from the UAE and beyond.
