The Christian Communication Centre and Bangladesh Christian Writers’ Forum jointly organized a Book fair exhibition at Mother Teresa's house in Tejgaon Holy Rosary Church on June 23.

The workshop aims to encourage Christian writers to develop skills in writing to be able to communicate with a broader audience, and we should know each other. To write in the light of Christian values.

The theme of this book exhibition fair and gathering of writers and readers was, "Let's read more books and enlighten society." About 80 Christian writers and readers were present at this event.

Father Bulbul A. Rebeiro, director of the Christian Communication Center, said, "The objective of the writers' gathering was to make them aware of their ability to walk and work together, though they have their expertise." 

"To give recognition of their lives and works, to encourage youth to recognize that being a writer is a vocation, and to respond positively to this vocation to spread goodness through writings," said Father Rebeiro.

Mohammad Nurul Huda, Director General of the Bangla Academy, congratulated all the Christian writers and gave them the inspiration to write more creative books and create a new writer in your society. He expressed his interest in holding a joint national workshop with Christian writers at the Bangla Academy soon.

"By participating in this program, I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to interact with many distinguished, knowledgeable people and to know and learn a lot through their guiding speeches," said Gomez. 

Mohammad Nurul Huda, Director General of Bangla Academy, and special guests Father Gabriel Corraya, Vicar General of Dhaka Archdiocese, and Theophile Nokrek, Director of Caritas Development Institute, were present as chief guests.
