And the Iraq Book Fair was the best option in such days. The pavilion of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, represented by the Department of Intellectual and Cultural Affairs and the Department of Islamic and Human Knowledge Affairs, witnessed, since the first days of this international book fair, large turnout of visitors, whether coming to buy some books or to ask some questions about the Holy Shrine. "
