SZBA panel in collaboration with Publishing Perspectives

As the book industry continues to develop in the Arab world, and more opportunities emerge for publishers to work across borders and cultures, this panel of international publishing experts explores the development of the rights and translation market in Arabic trade publishing. How has the rights field changed in recent years, and is there a need for more literary agents to represent Arabic works? What should Arabic and international publishers know about working together and navigating differences in their respective markets? Which markets are most receptive to Arabic literature in translation, and what types of Arabic books are getting translated? This event is supported by the Sheikh Zayed Book Award.
