Russian literature is widely represented at the Beijing International Book Fair, which opened on Wednesday, August 21, the site of the Year of Literature reports. The audience will be introduced to books by contemporary authors, new editions of classical works, and children's literature. The organizers are sure that books written by Yuri Tavrovsky, one of the most respected representatives of Russian sinology, will cause genuine interest.

Russian literature will be presented by Anatoly Kurchatkin. Admirers of his talent will meet him at one of Beijing's largest bookstores. Nina Dashevskaya will read excerpts from her books within the framework of the Wide Heart: Stories for Children program.

A special place is reserved for books that were published during the Program for the translation and publication of works of Russian and Chinese classical and modern literature. It has been held for seven years. As a result, the library of Russian and Chinese literatures in fifty volumes are being published separately in the two countries. The program made the emphasis on contemporary literature. More than eighty books have already been published in Russian and Chinese. Most of them are included in the exposition.

The results and prospects of the program will be discussed during the round table. A large stand is dedicated to the anniversary of the Victory in World War II.

Renowned translator of Russian literature Liu Wenfei and director of the Institute of Translation Yevgeny Reznichenko will discuss the problems of translating fiction.

After the exhibition, books will be presented to the Russian embassy.
