NBF to organize ‘Faisalabad Book Fair’ from today

ISLAMABAD: After receiving overwhelming response from the record visitors of National Book Fair held in the federal capital last month, another two-day book fair is to be kicked off in Faisalabad from today May 11, bringing a number of book oriented activities for the locals, especially youth and children.
The ‘Faisalabad Book Fair’ is being arranged by the National Book Foundation (NBF) in collaboration with the Faisalabad Arts Council which will feature around 50 book stalls by the local publishers.
This book fair is a part of the series of the book fairs planned by the organization in big cities as well as small towns to promote book reading culture among citizens.
A meeting to review arrangements of the book fair was held last week wherein Advisor to Prime Minister Irfan Siddiqui directed the officials concerned to invite heads of universities and other educational institutions, students and teachers to visit the book fair. He also directed officials to ensure maximum membership facility to the book lovers under Readers Club scheme of the NBF during the fair and ask the publishers to offer maximum discount on the books.
