18th Patna Book Fair Kick-starts!

We need an international book fair in Patna, feels Bihar CM Nitish Kumar. He was inaugurating the 18th Patna Book Fair at the Gandhi Maidan, yesterday. In alliance with UNICEF, the book fair’s theme is ‘Right to Education: Special focus on underprivileged children and girl child’.

The 12-day fest is organised by the Centre for Readership Development (CRD), and has over 670 book stalls, with a wide range representation from publishers, corporates, NGOS and others. On weekdays, the fair will be open from 11.30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on weekends, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. School and college children will have free entry to the book fair.

The organising committee of the fair will be giving away awards for journalism, literature and theatre, on December 19.
