Kutub Bilarabi Book Club
Kutub Bilarabi is a literary circle that reads works by Arab authors that are mainly published in Arabic and for which an English translation is available. Arab authors that write in English may sometimes be considered.

The reading group was formed in 2012 to promote an understanding of the Arabic culture and initiate a dialogue between Arab and non-Arab residents of Dubai. Kutub Bilarabi aims to continue the works that Kutub at the Third Line started in 2007.
