Book Talk: People of Ras Al Khaimah, Migration and Belonging with Anna Zacharias

Anna Zacharias is a Canadian raised in Ras Al Khaimah. She is a senior reporter at The National newspaper and author of People of Ras Al Khaimah with American photojournalist Jeff Topping. It documents more than 50 first-hand accounts of Gulf migration with portraits of pearl divers, gold traders, sword dancers, henna artists, and other entrepreneurs. She is The National’s resident camel expert.

Ras Al Khaimah is an emirate of superheroes: captains who survived shipwrecks, shipbuilders who survived lightning strikes, honey collectors who scaled mountains, and entrepreneurs who made a strange land home. This talk gives the stories behind the photo book People of Ras Al Khaimah, which contains the personal histories of more than 50 long-term residents and Emiratis. Through its images, we explore first-hand accounts of Gulf migration and the commonalities of the Gulf migrant experience.

Note: Pre-registration required and all ages are welcome.
