Readers Bookshop hosts book signing event for debut of young Jordanian author Thia Hanania’s Lessons Untaught

Amman, Jordan – March 2015 – Under the patronage of HRH Princess Dina Mir’ed, Director General of the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF), Readers Bookshop hosted a book signing event for the launch of young local author Thia Hanania’s Lessons Untaught, the proceeds of which are being donated to KHCF. The event was held at Readers’ Seventh Circle (Cozmo Centre) location on Tuesday, March 10, and was attended by an array of media representatives and reading enthusiasts.
Author Thia Hanania is a grade 10 student at Amman Baccalaureate School, where she began developing her newly released book, Lessons Untaught, as part of a personal project. Lessons Untaught explores the lives of some of the world’s most influential persons throughout history, drawing inspiration from their words, stories and advice in order to create a series of universally empowering life lessons. The book features quotes and tales from countless renowned individuals, including King Hussein, Albert Einstein, Coco Chanel, Steve Jobs and Muhammad Ali, among others.
Building upon the lessons she shares in her book, and recognising the barrier that the disease presents to both life and learning, Thia made the decision to donate all the proceeds from Lessons Untaught to KHCF, in the hope that her book may truly help others live life to the fullest. Lessons Untaught is now available exclusively at Readers.
Speaking on the occasion, Hiba Manna, Marketing Manager for THE Group – the retail pioneer behind Cozmo, Hamleys, Readers and BHS – said, “As a proud Jordanian company, we constantly strive to support talented local youth like Thia, and it is an absolute pleasure to be able to host her and her inspiring book in our stores. Readers is further honoured to welcome HRH Princess Dina Mir’ed, whose presence and support is sure to help make Lessons Untaught a great success, not only as a popular and uplifting read, but as a noble endeavour in support of the efforts of KHCF.”
Since opening in 2007, Readers has established itself as the leading bookshop in the Kingdom. With two branches – located in Cozmo Centre at the Seventh Circle and Taj Lifestyle in Abdoun – Readers offers its customers an extensive collection of books, covering an array of genres designed to excite and inspire avid book lovers and new readers alike.
