ALGIERS-Algerian writers will take part in the 60th Quebec international Book Fair that opened Wednesday with the participation of Algeria as a guest of honour, the Ministry of Culture said in a communiqué.
A delegation led by Chief of staff of the Ministry of Culture, Ali Redjel, attends this event, alongside with writers like Nacera Belloula, Ameziane Ferhani, Abdelwahab Aissaoui, Lynda Koudache and Dib Elyazid.
Speaking on this occasion, Redjel said that Algeria’s participation as a guest of honour “reflects friendship and partnership relations between Algeria and Canada.”
Algerian publishing houses like “Dar El Hikma and El Houda” partake in the 2019 edition of the Fair, chaired on an honorary basis by novelist Yasmina Khadra.
