Claritas Book Launch in Abu Dhabi with Joel Hayward

About this event...

Join us at The Book Corner in Alserkal Cultural Foundation, Abu Dhabi for our first ever international launch of two amazing books. The author will read from his book, answer questions, and be available to sign books. 
About the book: Good Islamic short stories are almost as rare as red diamonds, but prove as dazzling and entrancing when found. This collection of unique, intriguing and powerful stories – written in eloquent and captivating prose by an accomplished scholar, poet, and storyteller who converted to Islam after falling in love with the Holy Quran – avoids the current trends of trivial anecdotal narrative and over-the-top fantasy. His richly drawn characters are believable, as are even the most unexpected plot twists and turns, and he never strays from the reality of historical and contemporary events even when telling fabulously fictitious stories that contain surreal or imaginary elements. Written in various styles and in different voices, these highly original and evocative tales will move, sadden, delight and provoke readers. They will not let readers escape without challenging their assumptions or let them avoid engaging with the subtly revealed underpinning moral, philosophical or religious issues.
Joel Hayward FRHistS FRSA is a New Zealand–born, British, Muslim writer, poet, and "noted scholar of war and strategy" whom the daily newspaper Al Kaleej calls "a world authority on international conflict and strategy". He is best known for his published books and articles on strategic and security matters, including the use of air power, his 2003 biography of Horatio Lord Nelson, and his writing and teaching on the Quranic (Islamic) concepts of war, strategy and conflict.
