Afghanistan is slated to mount an exhibition of Iranian books and publications after the 2011 edition of the Tehran International Book Fair is finished.

The Balkh University will host a ten-day Iranian book fair starting on May 17, 2011 and the Afghan city of Herat will hold the same exhibition in June 2011.

“Afghanistan will hold two Iranian book exhibitions after the Tehran International Book Fair, which will run from May 4 to 14,” managing director of Iran's Erfan Publications Mohammad-Ebrahim Shariati told Mehr News Agency.

The Afghan exhibitions will be cosponsored by the Iranian Embassy in Kabul, Iran's Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, the Afghan Ministry of Information and Culture, and the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization.

“Afghanistan also held an Iranian book fair in Kabul in March 2011 which was warmly welcomed by the Afghan audience,” Shariati said, adding that all the books presented by Iran's SAMT, Amir Kabir and Negah-e Moaser publications were sold out during the event.

Amir Kabir, Soureh-Mehr, Boustan-e Ketab, Farhang-e Moaser and a number of other publishers will attend the upcoming book fairs in Afghanistan.

Erfan Publications will offer more than 200 books at the fair, Shariati announced.
