The VII Peskov Readings will hold in the Voronezh Reserve on Saturday, March 14. They are dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the famous journalist, writer, traveler, and TV host Vasily Peskov. This was reported to a RIA Voronezh correspondent by the head of the reserve’s Vasily Peskov Museum Natalya Khlyzova.
The event will be held in the conference hall of the visit center. It will start at 11:00. The meeting will be hosted by people who knew the writer personally, as well as admirers of his talent. Also the program includes the presentation of exhibitions dedicated to Peskov’s art activities in different years of his life.
“We called this meeting "The River of Life - Vasily Peskov Is 90 Years Old". Our fellow townsman called memories "swimming on the river of life". It is they that became the basis for the anniversary Peskov readings,” said Natalya Khlyzova. “We invite everyone who is not indifferent to the work of Vasily Peskov. It will be very interesting. One of the honored guests of the meeting is a famous French writer, a Russianist, a philologist, translator, and the author of 12 books about Russia, Yves Gauthier. He was personally acquainted with Vasily Peskov for almost a quarter of a century; he translated his book The Taiga Dead End into French.
Also, the readings will involve State Duma deputy Arkady Ponomarev, chairman of the Public Chamber of the Voronezh Region Nelya Ponomareva, deputy editor-in-chief of Komsomolskaya Pravda Yevgeny Sazonov, guests from the Altai Natural Reserve, and others.
