The first session that was part of the "children's" book fair. Working on illustrations.
One of the most talked-about attractions: antique books, including very old Ptolemy I was reluctant to touch.
Mostly teachers and students in the morning at the fair. Lots of roving students.
The Bloomsbury-Qatar stand, with TV character "Fafa" in the background. A series of "Fafa" books were launched, in English and Arabic.
My favorite: The schedule of events on a giant sandwich board outside. Since I wanted a version to carry around, Egyptian author Walid Taher told me: Take a picture, then!
Rearranging all the books (again) between waves of children.

Yes, if any photographers want to give me tips, I’m happy to hear them.
