Over 45,000 books have been collected so far and the figure is estimated to reach 110,000, Jamshir said.  A special ceremony will be held for six publishers of children’s books to unveil their works.

The second edition of the ‘Economy of the Book Industry’ conference has been planned by the CACBP and it will discuss the principles and rules “of creating and expanding the world of children’s books.”  

It will also discuss the lack of bookstores and libraries for children’s books and related subjects. Research papers and articles will be invited and studied and the selected articles will be published as a book.
