The two-day long Gulshan Book Fair started on February 28. Huge crowds were seen at the fair. People of all ages were seen visiting the book fair in colourful attires and taking autographs and selfies with their favourite writers
The first edition of Gulshan Boi Mela - a two-day long community book fair in the city's Gulshan ended on Saturday.
With over 15 stalls, the book fair was arranged by Gulshan Society at Gulshan Lake Park, reports UNB.
The literature festival had stalls from renowned publishers and other organisations including Cosmos Books, University Press Limited, Pathak Samabesh, Boi Bichitra, Ignite Publications and more.
Shukla Sarwat Siraj, Secretary General of Gulshan Society, on the closing day expressed hope that the fair will be held regularly in future.
"The fair has been arranged to facilitate the residents of Gulshan area. This area is at a great distance from Amar Ekushey Book Fair and so a separate book fair here will help the book lovers in Gulshan," she said.
The final day saw a comparatively large crowd.
Visitors expressed satisfaction for the neatly arranged segments on contemporary literature. They also wished that such essential festival will continue in future.
A small cultural function was arranged before the closure of the fair.
