While more writing from across the Arab world is being translated into other languages, a vast number of classics and modern works of Arabic literature remain untranslated. Our panel of experts on Arabic literature explores the reasons why many great Arabic writers are not yet translated, what makes Arabic literature so rich and varied, and which writers they believe deserve more international attention. They also explore how publishers and readers can get to know the deep canon of great works from the diverse Arab world. Hosted by the Sheikh Zayed Book Award and Publishing Perspectives.
