On the 4th of March, Magnezit museum will open the exhibition "Literary Satka – for Young Readers". This is the first exhibition of the new project Literary Satka organized by the corporate museum jointly with the literary communities of Satka District.

“Together with the Fellowship Literary Communities’ Association of Satka District we are preparing a series of exhibitions Literary Satka that will cover three main themes, telling about the many-faced artwork of local writers and poets,” says the Director of Magnezit museum Galina Golovko. “The first exhibition, which opens this Friday, will show books for children and young adults. The second exhibition will explore the local history and nature, and the third exhibition will be dedicated to the poetry and prose of the Great Patriotic War. Each exhibition of Literary Satka will include workshops, meet-the-artist events and lectures.”

The exhibition "Literary Satka – For Young Readers" is organized by Magnezit museum as part of the municipal program Popularization of Literary Heritage Among Primary School Children. This event is timed to the All-Russian Week of Children’s and Young Adult Books, which is typically celebrated during the spring school holidays.

This celebration was suggested by Soviet writer Lev Kassil and held for the first time on the 26th of March, 1943 in the midst of the Great Patriotic War. Since then, writers have been meeting young readers to tell them about their own work and new books every year. In time, the Children’s Book Week has seen even more juvenile and young adult books written and published. Satka’s wordsmiths carry on this good tradition too. This is actually the theme of our new exhibition where visitors will have a chance to learn about illustrators of children’s books.

The exhibition will include several creative workshops and meet-the-artist sessions, starting on the 10th and 11th of March, when such events will be organized for children of kindergarten No. 27. Look out for our upcoming announcements of other events.

The exhibition will be open for visitors until the end of March. Book your tour and event over the phone: 9-46-84.
