While the Amar Ekushey Book Fair 2018 is drawing greater number of crowd with each passing day, books authored by Bangladeshi writers also attracted many people at the 42nd edition of the International Kolkata Book Fair, reports UNB. A Bangladesh pavilion received notable responses from the visitors at the just concluded Kolkata Book Fair. With its Indo-Saracenic Revival architectural style, the pavilion boasting 42 stalls of rich Bangladeshi books drew attention of Kolkata book lovers throughout the fair duration - from January 30 to February 11at Salt Lake City in Kolkata.

This year, the Bangladesh pavilion was designed replicating one of the country's historic sites - Ahsan Manzil, one time official residential palace and the seat of the Dhaka Nawab situated on the bank of Buriganga at old part of Dhaka. Of the 42 stalls, eight were of government organisations while 34 others showcased books published by private publishers.

Anup Datta, owner of Mowla Brothers' stall, told UNB that, the pavilion got huge response from the visitors from the very first day. Almost 40 percent books were sold in the first two days of the fair, he claimed adding that the popularity of Bangladeshi writers especially Humayun Ahmed is commendable.
