For all those in Dubai: Emirati author Qais Sedki, creator of the acclaimed Middle Eastern manga Gold Ring, is celebrating the release of volume 2 today, March 1st, by going for the Guinness world record for books signed in 24 hour period. He needs to reach 1,951 books. He’s been sitting in Kinokuniya in the Dubai Mall now for ten hours so far. Part of the proceeds go to the charity Dubai Cares. The representatives of the Guinness staff are, apparently, on hand to document the event. Get down there, meet him, and support local art!
