Montréal, Quebec, 23 November 2015 (CBNS) — For six days, more than 109 thousands visitors from Montreal and other parts of Quebec came to this annual event to celebrate the richness and diversity of books, which are written or published in the French literature world.
This year, the theme of the Éditions bahá’íes [Baha'i Publishing] was “Unity in Diversity” to encourage young people to celebrate the diversity of the Human Race. During the Fair, which took place from 18 to 23 November, dozens of youths left messages stating how they could render a service to their friends and families. The large poster showing variation of  the theme such as “Love”, “Service” and “Unity” decorating the back of the booth was beautifully designed by Eleheh Bos .
Many of the messages left by the youth, most of whom came with a school group, showed that they were very environmentally conscious. Several dozens also emphasized the need to respect others and demonstrate good behaviour in general.
The Salon du Livre de Montréal is an important cultural event in Quebec. It attracts many public figures such as Montreal Mayer Mr Denis Coderre as well as the city counsellors and features many well-known authors. Of the 109, 000 enthusiastic visitors who took advantage of this unparalleled atmosphere tomeet authors, follow discussions and to discover a different world of books, over 2,500 stopped at the Éditions bahá’íes booth and participated in the interactive activities, bought books, or asked questions about the Bahá’í community.
Needless to say, it was a rewarding and unforgettable experience for all volunteers who have had the privilege to interact with the young generation and have an in depth conversation with general public!
