New on ArabLit: Events Calendar

Because digital events continue to be accessible worldwide, ArabLit has launched a permanent* events calendar, available at

We will be working to build up the calendar in the coming weeks. Those interested in sharing events for the calendar can email them to or tag us on events through Twitter, @arablit.

Featured upcoming events include:

Pop-up Book Club Discussion of Adania Shibli’s ‘Minor Detail’ is set to take place on July 18.

And coming in August, Opening of ‘Resistance, Rebellion & Revolution’: On Libyan Artist and Hasan ‘Alsatoor’ Dhaimish


Again, if there is something that should be in our events calendar, that is available worldwide, please let us know.
