ABU DHABI INTERNATIONAL BOOK FAIR 2016
The 26th edition of The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair will take place from 27th April to 3rd May at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
The International Book Fair is an annual event organised by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority. It is the most professionally organised, most ambitious and fastest growing book fair in the Middle East and North Africa. From literature to art, from reference publishing to children books, there is truly something for everyone.
Culture & Co, in partnership with the BIEF and Institut français, cultural department of the French Embassy in the UAE, welcomes you at the French pavilion. This is a unique occasion in the year to discover and buy French books, to meet French-speaking authors and enjoy book signing sessions in Abu Dhabi.
