Talking of Books on DubaiEye 103.8 FM

Talking of Books is a weekly review show which showcases some of Dubai’s most intrepid readers. Every week co-hosts Isobel Abulhoul and Annabelle Corton are joined by an ever-changing cast of guest reviewers drawn from the UAE’s reading community. A Book Champion introduces Dubai to a book they think is particularly significant and should be more widely read. Young reviewers are invited to share their thoughts on children’s literature and lead reviewers give us their views on the latest books in the Arab World and internationally.

Talking of Books is broadcast on Dubai Eye 103.8 from 10am-1pm every Saturday. You can also listen online through Dubai Eye’s website, and previous episodes are featured on the ToB Podcast page.

You can find out more about upcoming shows on the Emirates Literature Foundation website.
