Kuwait’s virtual book fair extends until Feb. – NCCAL

Secretary-General of National Council for Culture, Arts and Literature Kamel Al-Abduljalil announced Wednesday extension of virtual Kuwait Book Fair for two months, until February 2021.

This year’s Book Fair has been held in cooperation with NCCAL’s strategic partner, Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences.

He said that that Council was keen on continuing its services to the public in light of the cessation of many activities throughout the world.

He added that among the other main reasons for the extension was the requests from publishing houses and libraries to participate in the exhibition, in addition to the high number of visitors of the exhibition site, which exceeded 2,000 people per day, purchasing more than 70 publications, or over 1,000 Kuwaiti Dinars per day.

Kuwait Virtual Book Fair began on the 29th of November to ensure the continuation of the event even virtually.
