مجلس سيدات أعمال دبي يستضيف جلسة حصرية بعنوان "حب الكلمة" لأعضائها
The DBWC kicked off 2018 with a lively discussion by Emirate literature foundation. The members of the council had the opportunity to meet and hear Isobel Abulhoul, co-founder of Magrudy’s bookshop chain, and Founder and Director of the Emirates Festival of Literature, who is driven by her passion for the written and spoken word, in all its forms.
The DISCUSSION POINTS
1. Why reading and books are important throughout our lives and not just when we were students
2. How to choose a good book
3. Book Groups, how to start one, and general rules
4. How to make reading a shared experience
5. Other ways to enjoy literature
6. Why reading for pleasure is vital for every child
7. Stepping outside your comfort zone
The members left the session were inspired by the talk and enjoyed the tips that Isobelle gave to inspire others in their organizations to read more, to start a book group, and also to discover books that will change their life – for the better.
