Leh to Host First Book Fair in Collaboration with National Book Trust

A book fair will be held in Leh from July 12 to July 16 for the first time, thanks to a partnership between the National Book Trust (NBT) and the administration of UT Ladakh.

To review preparations and steps for its smooth and effective conduct, Divisional Commissioner Saugat Biswas presided over a meeting with key officials from the UT Administration and NBT.

Publishers with books for all age groups will participate in the five-day event, which will take place at the Indoor Stadium in Leh. There will also be special seminars and activities for kids, including ones that encourage creative writing, poster-making, storytelling, and encounters with writers.

The active involvement of Ladakhi authors, researchers, illustrators, creative artists, publishers, academicians, etc., was discussed in addition to utilities like drinking water, lavatory facilities, power, parking, on-site medical team, fire, and safety. The Divisional Commissioner encouraged the responsible Department to guarantee the exhibition of high-quality publications and instructed NBT to ensure designating one stand each for Leh and Kargil.  

In order to help Ladakhi students take competitive exams, it was also requested of NBT to include literature on these tests.

Additionally, Biswas gave the appropriate department instructions to vigorously promote the fair via all forms of media in order to achieve the highest possible attendance, particularly from schoolchildren.
