About Romance: Alawiya Sobh & Julia Quinn

Date/Time: Saturday 12 February 2022 17:00-18:00

Venue: Al Habtoor Ballroom, Habtoor Palace, Al Habtoor City

Language: English

Session No: 73 

‘Romance’ is one of those words that can spread a thin layer of frivolity over much more serious issues – deep emotions, class and family conflict, toxic or abusive relationships, and… intimate matters that we might be too nervous to discuss openly.

Our panellists are experts in matters of the heart and all that pertains to it (which, if you think about it, is pretty much everything). In this lively and taboo-busting session, they will explore the romance author’s craft and the many reasons we love to read about love.

Julia Quinn is the New York Times bestselling author of the Bridgerton series and one of only sixteen members of Romance Writers of America's Hall of Fame.

Alawiya Sobh is the author of Maryam Al-Hakaya and three more critically acclaimed novels, most recently To Love Life.
