February book fairs are held every year in Dhaka Bangla Academy premises, the fair remains the only place that attracts all types of readers across the country. Among other programmes, recitation and discussion sessions among young writers and poets in the Lekhok Kunja (writer's corner) are one of the main attractions of the fair. Discussion sessions followed by cultural programmes are staged within the academy premises regularly.
