Sharjah: UAE Supreme Council member and Ruler of Sharjah Dr Shaikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi launched his latest historical, intellectual and literary publications at ‘Al Qasimi Publications’ Pavilion during the 38th Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF).
This launch of the five titles coincides with Sharjah’s same yearlong World Book Capital 2019 celebrations, following UNESCO’s recognition of its leading efforts to promote books and reading.
The new book collection includes The Head of Prince Muqran, Philip the Arab, The Rule of Qaraqosh, Nudhum Al Fareid in the Legacy of ibn Mājid, and Calls from Ruler of Sharjah to Sharjah Radio's Direct Line (Al Khat Al Mubasher).
Dr Sultan Al Qasimi is a prolific writer and has 172 titles spanning history, literature, fiction, theatre and biography, including 60 titles in Arabic and 112 titles in 15 international languages.
All the proceeds of the Sharjah Ruler’s books support the Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services, which aims to build a bright future for mentally and physically challenged children, by providing them with skills and giving them a chance to live in an equal-opportunity society, according to WAM.
