We are pleased to announce that Al Saqi Bookshop has been featured as Books Combined’s Bookshop of the Month.
In an interview with Books Combined, the director of Al Saqi Bookshop, Salwa Gaspard, explained how the bookshop and its publishing arm – Saqi Books – were established. The bookshop has been “the beating heart of the Arab community in London” since 1979 and has always been committed to promoting a better understanding of Arab society as a whole. It is a place where people from all walks of life and backgrounds can browse, side by side, exploring an eclectic selection of books in both Arabic and English.
The shops stocks books on a range of subjects and has particularly large sections on art, fiction, poetry, cookery, and an increasing number of children’s books. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and will always go the extra mile to track down books for customers, old and new.
