"We decided that it was unfair that the annual well-known Belarusian authors, issued in the private publishing houses, go to the Minsk book fair only visitors and buyers of foreign books. They have a lot of interesting friends ".

"Fair organizers considered independent publishers of Harry Potter, because we were placed under the stairs. And, as you know, Harry Potter the first ten years of his life in the closet under the stairs. That's about the same situation: we are on a tiny, tiny piece of a staircase from the backside so it's the former Exhibition of Economic Achievements. So — come. "
