The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature has partnered with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) for a brand new initiative – Together We Read. The aim of this initiative is to foster a culture of reading among Emirati families by encouraging students to read Arabic books to and with their parents/families.

In 2016, declared the Year of Reading by UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Festival continues its efforts to encourage children and families to enjoy reading and cultivate a reading habit.

Authors Sahar Naja Mahfouz and Salha Al Halyan have been visiting schools as part of the initiative to show parents how to read to their children.
