On October 20, the Russian House in Brussels hosted the first meeting from the cycle “… With Russian Roots”, dedicated to the “Russian trace” in European culture. It is significant that the first guest was well-known in Europe, especially in the French-speaking environment, the Franco-Russian writer, laureate of the Goncourt Prize and member of the French Academy Andrey Makine.
The meeting was moderated by Tatiana Hashimi, a Belgian journalist and anthropologist.
The evening passed in a warm and friendly atmosphere, the conference hall of the Russian
House could hardly accommodate the admirers of Andrey Makin who came to the meeting. Finally, the writer held an autograph session for his new novel L’ami arménien (ed. Grasset) for Belgian and European readers.
