From February 21 to February 26, we will host ‘The Hague Freedom Book Fair 2018’. together with other organisations and with participation from publishers from different parts of the world. There will be panel discussions, film screenings, books, writers, journalists and poetry on freedom of expression in its many forms and contexts.
The Hague Peace Projects, Mukto-Mona and other international organizations hosted a book fair in February 2016 at Humanity House in The Hague titled ‘Bangladesh Alternative Book Fair’ in memory of Avijit Roy and other Bangladeshi writers and free thinkers who got killed in 2015 and in solidarity with the persecuted and exiled Bangladeshi writers who were unable to be present in the Ekushey Book Fair in Bangladesh. “The Hague Freedom Book Fair” is a continuation of that event.
