Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival

Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival (SCRF) is a favourite annual fixture for authors across the Arab world, and includes events with a growing number of international authors. The seventh SCRF took place in April 2015 and featured events with Alex T.Smith illustrator of the Claude series, Posy author Linda Newbery (UK), and Sarah Moore Fitzgerald (US).

Events in the Festival programme include daytime events for children, alongside a host of debates, panel discussions, talks and workshops aimed at adult audiences that are all free to attend across the emirate.

Midas has consulted on the international authors programme at the Fair since 2012.
