The second edition of the Ramadan Book Fair, which kicked off at Darb Al Saai in Umm Salal on March 30, is a big hit.

The fair featuring 79 publishing houses and bookstores including 31 from Qatar and 48 from abroad was originally scheduled to conclude on April 5, but has now been extended by another four days (April 9), announced Qatar’s Ministry of Culture.

The fair will be open to the public every day from 7pm until midnight.

Qatar’s Minister of Culture Sheikh Abdulrahman bin Hamad Al Thani, who inaugurated the exhibition, had spoken about the importance of the exhibition.

“The Ramadan Book Fair is a rich extension of a cultural year full of activities and events. It’ll contribute to the spread of values of creativity and innovation. The event also opens broader horizons for constructive intellectual dialogue on many issues among creators and different segments of society,” he said.

“The Ramadan Book Fair is characterised by the diversity of its activities. From productive family events to cultural and religious seminars, visitors will find a rich combination of culture and tradition. The Darb Al Saai has become a major destination for cultural, heritage and social activities in the country,” he added.

The Ramadan Book Fair will include a number of activities including seminars, art and culture workshops, puppet theatre and traditional storytelling.
