Meeting with readers in Shumen
On the occasion of Children’s Day, I was invited at the Regional library in the city of Shumen to present the novel Rozara’s Trial to pupils from Primary School Dr Petar Beron. After I shared with them thoughts on literature and the novel, they posed a number of smart and intelligent questions and we had an interesting conversation.
“We invited him for a meeting because we heard that the book is pretty interesting and many of my schoolmates want to read it”, said the pupil Nia. “To me personally, the most interesting and important thing I learned today about the author is that he prefers reading the books and not watching the movies based on them. Now, I would prefer the book too”, said fourth-grader Marina.
“Our long-awaited meeting is a sort of a present for the children for June 1st”, said the class teachers before a reporter of the Bulgarian News Agency. The meeting with the children from Primary School Dr Petar Beron at the city of Shumen is organized in cooperation with the national initiative for encouragement of children’s reading The Storyteller.
