Baku Hosts 3rd International Book Fair
“The Fair is a result of international interest to book production in Azerbaijan. It is important to increase the number of such events. We will celebrate the book holiday during one week in Azerbaijan. And on September 25 we’ll celebrate the 90th anniversary of Azerbaijan National Library named after Mirza Fatali Akhundov”, - has said Mr. Garayev.
He also noted that from now on this kind of Fairs will be arranged biannually. And added that every year Azerbaijani book publishers participate in 6-7 book fairs around the globe and gain great successes.
Just visitors can see different publishing houses displaying their products. One of them – “Qanun” Publishing House has arranged a discount sale of its production in order to get more readers. As told us the director of the “Qanun” Shahbaz Khuduoglu, their aim is to serve more readers while they believe that as higher as possible the literacy is, the people will be more tolerant and more respectful towards each others.
“Qanun” is one of the leading publishing houses in Azerbaijan which has an expertise in publishing foreign and national literature. Especially they publish young writers representing new literature.
Mrs. Pervane Alekperli, an employee of Azerbaijan National Library also stressed out her impressions while asked about their participation. She said that the National Library is in forefront of all events related to books. Alekperli noted that the biggest stand belongs to the National Library in the Fair.
Among representatives of foreign countries we witnessed stands of Kuwait, Iran, Romania, Russia, even the United States of America as well. One can find here books in Turkish, English, Russian, French languages and enjoy discount as well.
