The book fair was opened by Roman Senchin, one of the most important contemporary Russian writers, whose works have been translated into several foreign languages. In his speech, Sencin emphasized that: “Book fairs and similar manifestations are one of the most important instruments for the development of culture in the relations between states. There has been talk for decades that books and literature are dying slowly, and that other media will suppress the book, but that is superficial thinking. It is true that the book in its usual form is gradually suffering defeat ... On the other hand, there is growing interest in the book in electronic form. ”The writer argued that true literature never lies.

In the days that followed, the Book Square was refined by the promotion of the novel "Praise for Opportunism" by Czech writer Toman Marek, who was awarded the Czech Literary Fund Award, followed by the novel by Roman Senčina, "The Immersion Area."
