Join one of Dubai’s best-loved children’s authors as she introduces her new book The Pearl Diver’s Son. Julia Johnson will take you on a journey into the past through the adventures of Rashid, whose father sailed away to dive for pearls in the Arabian Sea. His father never returned, and now Rashid is forced to leave his family and take his place on the pearling dhow. Not only must he learn to survive the perils of the deep, he is also determined to discover the truth behind his father’s mysterious death. This is the perfect event to explore the history of pearl diving with a thoroughly engrossing mystery for added excitement.

Julia has written many books for children and has a special focus on the history and traditions of this region.
