Bloomsbury Publishing partners with UAE-based Kalimat
Less than a year after its partnership with the Qatar Foundation was ended, Bloomsbury Publishing is signing a new agreement with the Sharjah, UAE-based Kalimat Group. Kalimat Group, which began publishing picturebook titles in 2007, now has three different imprints: the original Kalimat; Horouf, which brings out educational tools and materials; and Rewayat, which focuses on books for adults and young adults. Kalimat Group has published more than 170 titles since its launch nine years ago.
They’ll begin with 10 titles from each publisher as early as this year, 2016. These titles will include books for children and young adults as well as general-audience fiction.
