THE NATIONAL: Children, poetry and a pair of freakishly realistic horse puppets were all part of the fun at the opening night of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature. Many of the guest authors who will appear during the festival were at the event held on 3 March in the theatre of The Cultural and Scientific Association in Dubai’s Al Mamzar, which also included a special address by Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak, the UAE’s Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development.
