Arabs Talk Change & Challenges At Toronto Authors’ Festival

The Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA) is a gathering of the brightest minds in the world of literature where issues of the age like AI and climate change are discussed in a panel-like setting.

In its 44th edition, this year’s festival continues its prerogative to explore the voices of non-English speaking authors namely those from the Arab world in the multilingual section of the event.

The six Arab representatives include Tunisian writers Kamel Riahi and Mohamed Khelifi, Egyptian-Canadian novelist May Telmissany, Palestinian-Icelandic Mazen Maalouf, Egyptian writer and academic Waleed Al Khachab and Syrian poet Jackleen Hanna; sharing the stage with high-profile Western writers until October 1 to give the Middle East’s take on the contemporary challenges facing society.

This comes following the success of Arab countries hosting world-changing forums like COP in Egypt and UAE.
