Date/Time: Sunday 5 February 2023 17:30-18:30

Venue: Al Riwaq III, InterContinental, Dubai Festival City

Language: English

Session No: 271 

As a travel writer, Nicholas Jubber has explored parts of the world that are currently less travelled, meeting fascinating people and listening to their stories. Who could be better placed to bring that curiosity for other people’s lives to investigate the origins of stories which we all know as Fairy Tales? Join us to discover who these Fairy Tellers were, dreamers who brought to life our most beloved stories and characters, from Beauty and the Beast to Baba Yaga. You have probably heard of the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen and Charles Perrault, but Nicholas Jubber will take you further into the secret world of fairy tales, looking at seven of their tellers and the worldwide connections that can be made.

Nicholas Jubber is a British travel writer whose latest work, The Fairy Tellers, is about the origins and people behind the world’s most influential magical tales.

This session is moderated by Julia Wheeler
