Bushra Ansari and Sadia Imam are to help spread the love of reading across Pakistan as they are now the book ambassadors of National Book Foundation.
It turns out that Bushra Ansari and Sadia Imam were into reading books and are readaholics of some sort.
Last week the National Book Foundation appointed Sadia Imam, TV actress of Pakistan and a model in commercials, catwalks and musicals, and Bushra Ansari, television compeer, actress and producer in Pakistan, among some other showbiz people and men of letters, book ambassadors so that the culture of reading could take root in Pakistan.
The brochure that mentioned the two with their pictures also said Sadia Imam is a poet! We know about Bushra Ansari being a writer.
National Book Foundation was established in 1972 as a service rendering educational welfare association. It is a statutory Corporation formed through an Act of the Parliament in order to make books accessible at moderate prices. It has its Head Office in Islamabad and Regional Offices at each provincial Headquarters. In addition it has Branch Offices and bookshops also. National Book Foundation’s management is in the hands of the Board of Governors of Pakistan.
