Ekushey Book Fair to be held like previous time

A decision was learnt that The Amar Ekushey Book Fair fair will be held like previous time, according to Bangla Academy.

The Book Fair became uncertain due to the coronavirus pandemic and there was discussion that it will be held virtually. Its schedule, however, will be changed.

It is learned that Bangla Academy was in a dilemma whether they will hold the book fair or not amid coronavirus. 

But poets and writers protested it on social media. They also urged authorities concerned to hold the book fair in presence of changing the schedule.

Accordingly, publishers held a meeting with Bangla Academy Director General Habibullah Siraji.

Meeting sources said the book fair will be held like previous time. 

But it will not be held in February and its schedule will be notified later.
