The second edition of Reading Box initiative has started from today. It has a dedicated happiness programme and lecture, an introduction to a new happiness book written by Abdullah Al Kaabi, and a Happiness from Space programme from Nasser Al Rashidi, CEO of Happiness at UAE Space Agency.

The initiative, which focuses on children and youth, will host a book exhibition and workshops, as well as discussion sessions. There will also be a book signing and interactive reading sessions for the children.

Located at City Walk 2, Reading Box will run under the theme A generation reads. A civilisation rises in support of the UAE’s National Reading Strategy and the National Month of Reading in March.

It will run until April 1, from 10am to 10pm on weekdays, and 10am to midnight on weekends.

The first edition of Reading Box was held last year in The Dubai Mall during the Year of Reading. It attracted over thousands of children and adults.
