Russian books at Thessaloniki Book Fair
Joint mount of the Russian publishers at the International Book Fair in Thessaloniki is presented in tandem with Russia’s Publishers’ Association and the Russkiy Mir Foundation. The exhibition to be open from the 3d of May until the 6th of May is displaying books on various topics and by different publishers: children’s literature, fiction, religious literature, published in Russia. The prevailing part of the collection are religious books published in Tobolsk, Rybinsk, Voronezh and Nizhny Novgorod.
Russian mount includes book novices and literature projects of Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Tyumen and Yaroslavl Regions. In particular, recent Metropolitan Hilarion’s six-volume study on the life and message of Jesus Christ published by Sretensky Monastery and unique Gospel by Dostoevsky published by Tobolsk Renaissance with participation of the Russian State Library are expected to evoke great interest of the Greek specialists and of wider audience.
After the exhibition closure, the book collection will be passed to the Compatriots’ Alliance as a present. Taking into account a considerable number of Russian-speaking population and Russian schools at different Greek cities, this step is doubtlessly very useful.
A round table for management of the Russia’s Publishers’ Association and National Association of Greek Publishers and National Foundation of the Greek Culture is planned at the fair as well as signature of a new collaboration protocol.
Two important jubilees connecting our countries are celebrated in 2018, which are the 190th anniversary of setting official diplomatic relations between Russia and Greece (1828) and the 25th anniversary of signing the present bilateral Agreement of Friendship and Cooperation between the two countries. (1993).
