Doha: Under the patronage of Minister of Culture H E Sheikh Abdulrahman bin Hamad bin Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Ministry of Culture (MoC) will organise 2nd Ramadan Book Fair from March 30 to April 5 at Darb Al Saai headquarters in Umm Salal with the participation of 79 publishing houses and bookstores from within Qatar and abroad.
Out of its keenness to expand the benefits of the Ramadan Book Fair and be in pace with the atmosphere of the holy month, the MoC in cooperation with the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, the Ministry of Social Development and Family, and Qatar Reads Initiative, organizes a number of events and accompanying activities, including a series of cultural and religious lectures and seminars, an exhibition of productive projects, artistic and heritage activities for children and adults, and celebrating the Garangao night.
In a statement marking the occasion, Minister of Culture H E Sheikh Abdulrahman bin Hamad bin Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani said that Ramadan Book Fair is a new episode in a cultural season full of events throughout the year.
He noted the immense success of the seminar series in its second edition enriched the cultural scene and the constructive intellectual space around historical and contemporary issues, and that is what the Ministry seeks in its interest in such cultural events.
The Minister added that the Ramadan Book Fair draws its objectives from the vision of the MoC that aims at strengthening the efforts of localizing books and the publishing industry in Qatar, highlighting book creativities in various fields while honoring its author, and opening broader aspects for cooperation between writers and publishers, in a way that supports book marketing and expands its circle of readers.
