- I am visiting the book exhibition in Baku with a great joy and inspiration. The event has been organised at the highest level, and to be honest, I was worried that the exhibition, being held somewhat far from the city center, would not attract the required number of visitors. But, as you can see, the organisers took care of this too. There is a large influx of visitors of all ages. I am very glad that I can see a lot of young people around here. Now it is often said that young people read little, but in my opinion, the exhibition has successfully refuted this fact.

The exhibition presents such a variety of colors of various literature that I am sure that every visitor found what he was looking for. As part of the Baku International Book Fair 2021, my latest work was presented and a contract for its publication was signed. This event was preceded by a meeting with readers, which was also very successful, gathered a large number of participants who know my work and with whom we had an interesting conversation.
