This March marks the 140th anniversary of the birth of Russian and Soviet science fiction writer Alexander Belyaev. In Soviet times, Alexander Belyaev’s books were read not only by adults, but also by teenagers.

This is how the members of the literary salon were perceived when they were invited to turn to the work of this writer. Retreat: Our literary salons are held in a warm, friendly atmosphere with a cup of tea and delicious cookies. Join us. In fact, [...]

2024-03-19T12:52:08+01:00March 19th, 2024|Categories: Library, literary blog, Literary Blogs, Russian language|

March 5th marked our second literary salon dedicated to the works of Vladimir Nabokov. This time, our focus was not so much on his creations but rather on his life journey and the circumstances that influenced the plotlines of his novels. I must say that this time I was merely an audience member. Two passionate readers and members of our literary salon prepared an entire presentation. I knew they were preparing something, but I never expected it to be of such magnitude. Here are some highlights from the presentation. Vladimir Nabokov was born on April 10 (22), 1899, in [...]

On the last day of February, admirers of Vladimir Nabokov's works gathered in the premises of our library. The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the surname of this great writer is "Lolita." In fact, it is one of his works. Yes, the most famous one due to its scandalous non-triviality. So, we decided to move away from the accepted stereotypes and talk about other, no less significant works of this author. The majority of our regular attendees and frequenters have read his very first and charming novel "Mashenka". As indicated by [...]

September 30, 1833 A.S. Pushkin visited the Orenburg province. The purpose of this trip was to collect materials about Pugachev. At that time, Alexander Sergeevich decided to write both a historical essay about Pugachev and a novel from the era of the Pugachev uprising. This is in our time: make a couple of mouse clicks and you will get more or less reliable information, but then everything was much more complicated, but also more interesting. Pushkin not only traveled through the “eastern province” to personally visit the places where the events took place, but met with local old-timers - contemporaries [...]

It so happened that our morning literary salon took place on the birthday of the great Russian bard, poet, and actor Vladimir Vysotsky. Therefore, it was not surprising that we started our meeting with his works. Детям вечно досаден Их возраст и быт — И дрались мы до ссадин, До смертных обид, Но одежды латали Нам матери в срок, Мы же книги глотали, Пьянея от строк.  («Баллада о борьбе» В. Высоцкий) He was a controversial poet. His works still provoke debates: some love them, others do not understand. He was envied during his lifetime, and some predicted his soon-to-be forgotten, but [...]

Dear friends! The first session of our theater studio has taken place. Initially, the minimum age for young artists was planned to be 13 years old, but as it turned out, there are quite a few enthusiastic individuals of a younger age. We talked to Olga Markina, the leader of the theater studio, and she said that the main thing is the desire, and age is secondary. So, children from 10 years old are accepted into the studio. As an exception, children of a younger age may be admitted, but only after an interview with the leader. Remember, dear parents, [...]
