The Peninsula Qatar
Sharoq Ibrahim Almalki, an aspiring Qatari writer who currently serves as Executive General Manager and Chief Human Capital Officer at Commercial Bank, has launched her first published book titled A Piece of Peace. The book launch was hosted at the Ministry of Culture Book Stand yesterday, coinciding with the 25th Doha International Book Fair being held at the Qatar National Convention Centre.
The launch was attended by H E Dr Hamad bin Abdulaziz Al Kuwari, the Minister of Culture, Arts and Heritage; Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali bin Jabor Al Thani, the Chairman of Commercial Bank; Abdulla Saleh Al Raisi, the Chief Executive Officer of Commercial Bank, and other dignitaries.
A Piece of Peace is a unique anthology reflecting universal wisdom that transcends boundaries, regions and cultures written from the perspective of a female Qatari writer. The writer provides her personal insights about what life lessons can be learnt from a deeper understanding of this wisdom in a straightforward yet thought provoking representation; which can be considered a maxim to emulate.
Almalki said: “I realised that these morals and fables had an overwhelming influence when shared with my family, friends and colleagues over the last 10 years. This timeless wisdom, which I gained through my experiences in life, are simple truths and values irrespective of age, background or nationality. By publishing my book I hope to spread these valuable insights and knowledge to a wider community; therefore I choose to publish it internationally as well through the world’s largest online book seller Amazon.com”.
A Piece of Peace is published by Dar Al Sharq and is being distributed by Tawseelat merchant outlets in Qatar including Jarrir Bookstore, Virgin Megastore and Carrefour.
