February 9, 2017:
A regular literary event of the project Let’s Read Classics Together was dedicated to the works by Alexander Vampilov and Valentin Rasputin.
The names of these authors are rarely heard today, and their books are known mostly to older generation, that’s why the aim of the event was to get young readers interested. Irina Kondratieva, the host of the evening, paid particular attention to Alexander Vampilov’s play The Elder Son and Valentin Rasputin’s novel Farewell to Matyora. The literary event reached its climax with a scene from Alexander Vampilov’s comedy Farewell in June played by professionals of the library Svetlana Kharina and Artem Ivanov.
