Katara stall draws crowds at book fair.

The Katara Publishing House stall at the ongoing 29th Doha International Book Fair at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre is attracting a large number of visitors.
The Katara stall has showcased about 112 titles, in Arabic, English and French, all published and circulated by the Katara Publishing House, which also released two new books on Tuesday at the fair.
The first is Medical Analysis of an Arab Love Story, Majnoon Laila by Dr Hajar Ahmed Hajar Albinali, and the other by Dr Mohamed Abdul Raheem Kafoud in Arabic on language, identity and culture, with a special focus on the Gulf region.
“This is the first time Katara Publishing House is participating in the Doha International Book Fair. Our stall is offering Arabic novels and other books on a wide range of topics at reasonable prices,” said Khalid al-Sayed, director of the Katara Publishing House.
The stall showcases Qatari heritage and traditions through a number of books in Arabic on topics such as fishing and pearl diving, shipbuilding and traditional dhows, pigeons in Katara and Qatari maritime traditions.
A book titled, Forts, Strongholds and Towers in Qatar, available in English and Arabic, introduces Qatari landmarks supported with brilliant photographs.  There is a book dedicated for the famous Qatari dhow Fath Al Khair and another on the different variety of trees found in Katara – the Cultural Village.
The Katara Publishing House stall is located at Gate 1 Booth 1. The 10-day exhibition will conclude on Saturday.
