"Convenient literature"
03.11.2023

We want to tell you about the interesting project "Convenient literature"

The project under this name was created by Elena Novichkova, a resident of the Ulyanovsk region, who won the Tinkoff Bank grant competition for social initiatives
.
Already in early autumn, thanks to the grant, seven benches of all colors of the rainbow appeared, and even with illustrations. They are dedicated to famous poets and writers whose names are associated with Simbirsk - Dmitry Minaev, Nikolai Yazykov, Ivan Goncharov, Sergei Aksakov, Nikolai Karamzin and... Alexander Pushkin. As you remember, 190 years ago it was in Simbirsk that the great poet collected materials about the uprising of Yemelyan Pugachev

Elena "caught" the desire of many to read outdoors, combined carpentry and literature. Her husband, a novice carpenter, and schoolchildren from the village of Arkhangelskoye in the Ulyanovsk region joined the project. And the Ulyanovsk artist Olga Sheptalina took up the illustrations.

There are doors on the benches where you can put coffee or lemonade while enjoying reading. Now these literary art objects are traveling around Ulyanovsk and the Ulyanovsk region – they have visited city libraries, including the recently opened Pushkin Model Children's Library No. 24, and other libraries and schools in the region. There are many more routes ahead of them. The project helps to popularize literature and local history among the younger generation
