In connection with the holiday, the Chairman of the Literary Council of Writers and Readers of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly Margarita Al addressed the members and partners of the Assembly, quoting the famous poet, member of the Presidium of the General Council of the Assembly Olzhas Suleimenov:

- Dear friends, colleagues, on behalf of the Council of Writers and readers of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly, I congratulate you on the International Book Day.

Book Day is truly a celebration of the unity of writers and readers, it is a day when a reader can thank his beloved writer, and a writer can pay tribute to readers who trusted his knowledge and fantasy.

The importance of the book is undeniable. This is a memory of the past, a bridge to the future and support in the present.

Books are the greatest means of disseminating knowledge, the most reliable way to preserve it.

The book is the strongest symbol of humanity and a sign that distinguishes a person .

What will be our future? What will the future person be like? These issues became the topic of seven round tables at the IV Eurasian Literary Festival of LiFFt Festivals in Baku, where writers from 52 countries of the world shared their vision and wishes.

Olzhas Suleimenov, one of the outstanding poets and thinkers of our time, reminded everyone of the importance of the book and the guilt of the book, which was thrown into the market as a commodity, to compete with oil and gas; but all the same, the book will survive and be in demand for generations, and the man of the future will be a reader.
