Taghrid Najjar is the founder of Al Salwa Publishing House. She is also a writer of children books and educational material related to story books. She works closely with schools and presents workshops for teachers and children. Many of her books have been adopted as supplementary readers by schools in the region.
Taghrid enjoys visiting schools for “meet the author” events and for story reading sessions of her latest books. She says, “It is an exhilarating experience interacting with my readers. I feel truly privileged to be a part of their childhood memories through my books.”
She is the author of over 40 Arabic children books. Some of her titles have been translated and published in English, French and Chinese magazines. She recently signed a contract for the Swedish rights of one of her books.
Taghrid has travelled to many parts of the world to read her stories but now resides in Amman, Jordan with her family where she continues to write.
