H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, launched his latest historical, intellectual and literary publications at ‘Al Qasimi Publications’ Pavilion on Wednesday at the 38th Sharjah International Book Fair, SIBF.
This landmark launch of five titles coincides with Sharjah’s same yearlong World Book Capital 2019 celebrations, following UNESCO’s recognition of its leading efforts to promote books and reading.
The Head of Prince Muqran book is the latest in the genre of historical novels that H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan Al Qasimi has written, and portrays the important roles played by many historical characters in shaping Arab history.
In this book, readers will find an exemplary model of management for any cultural or developmental project, apart from the general management of any country. It is a model that turns words into actions, because many of His Highness’s ideas and thoughts shared on the programme, have become projects that were implemented and came to fruition exactly the way he described them.
H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan Al Qasimi has 172 titles spanning history, literature, fiction, theatre and biography, including 60 titles in Arabic and 112 titles in 15 international languages.
All the proceeds of the Sharjah Ruler’s books support the Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services, which aims to build a bright future for mentally and physically challenged children, by providing them with skills and giving them a chance to live in an equal-opportunity society.
