The LitFest Blog
By: Rayan Ferretti
I have always been an avid reader. Joining the Costa reading group held by the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature has been a wonderful experience as, apart from meeting new reading friends who share the same passion as me, I can meet many authors who actually wrote the book I have been reading. I could discuss with them their stories and what goes on behind the scene.
I could not wait for March to come to be able to immerse myself into literature and meet literature-lovers like me and be seated in the first row to be able to see and hear the sessions with the writers.
A big thank you to Yvette, who has been giving us the great chance to discuss books we read every month and encouraging very exiting discussions.
I am so proud to be part of the Costa reading group, I have had so much fun so far that I have decided to launch it at my school (Emirates International School Jumeirah), helped by the Parent Community group (PCG). This way, many more students will have the opportunity to participate and enjoy what I enjoy. To make it easy to realize, we will be just replicating the same procedure for the Costa reading group with the help of Yvette.
This is the advertising that the Parents Community Group (PCG) at school has made for the launch of the initiative.
