January 25th.

A literary evening dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of the poet Boris Chichibabin was held among friends, admirers of his talent and lovers of literature. Yuri Berdan, a poet, shared his memories of the Kharkov period of his life: he was a student of Boris Chichibabin and remembered well the creative atmosphere of those years. According to the announcement, a friend of the Chichibabin family, Inna Kogan, came to us for the evening, who brought and showed a handwritten notebook with poems by the poet, who had once entrusted her with keeping the texts in case of arrest and confiscation of property. All participants of the meeting read poetry, discussed sensitive topics.

The screen showed unpublished photographs from the personal archive of the widow of the outstanding writer Lilia Karas-Chichibabina, whom Viktoria Kurchenko met in Kharkov. The program was hosted by Elena Prozorova.
