Saqi Books Shortlisted for Inclusivity in Publishing Award
We’re thrilled to announce that Saqi has been shortlisted for the 2018 Inclusivity in Publishing Award at the London Book Fair. Huge congratulations to our fellow shortlisted publishers – Cassava Republic, HarperCollins and Penguin Random House.

The Inclusivity in Publishing Award is one of seventeen categories which together make the London Book Fair International Excellence in Publishing Awards. A record twenty-seven countries are represented this year across the categories, which include international publishing, bookselling, academic and scholarly publishing, children’s publishing, literary translation and digital innovation. The winners of each category will be announced on Tuesday 10 April.

Our aim at Saqi has always been to publish works that help demolish cultural barriers and encourage conversations. Saqi is open to controversial and challenging ideas, creating opportunities for dissident voices to speak for themselves. Excellent work is being done across the industry by all – but there’s plenty more change that needs to be enacted. This prize serves as a reminder of that.
 

In celebration, we’d like to offer a 40% discount for The Things I Would Tell You: British Muslim Women Write (a Guardian Book of the Year), Don’t Panic, I’m Islamic (a Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year) and Calligraphies of Love by Hassan Massoudywhen you buy from Al Saqi Books. Enter the discount code Award40 at checkout to claim.
                                
‘Anyone interested in Arab culture is aware of the invaluable role Saqi plays in making available pioneering, specialist and often controversial books that large publishers refuse to go near.’
