Patna Book Fair 2022 A Low Key Affair

After a long gap of three years, The much-awaited and popular Patna Book Fair is being organized at the Gandhi Maidan by the CRD (Centre for Readership Development) from 2nd to 13th of December-2022.

The people coming to fair are joyful, enthusiastic and also nostalgic to participate at this 27th edition of Patna book fair as it is being held after a long gap. The event could not be held due to the Corona Pandemic after 2019.

“मोबाइल छोड़िए, किताब पढ़िए” (Discard Mobile Phones, Read Books) is the theme of this year book fair.

This year event has been a low-key affair because of low participation of publishers and less extra-curricular activities – may be due to covid aftermath.
