For the celebration, the State Museum of the History of Belarusian Literature prepared a temporary exhibition of photographs and books of the poet from its own funds and the collections of the National Library of Belarus. Theorists of literature, historians exploring the interwar period (1920–1930) and the works of Valery Marakou – Konstantin Tsvirko, Irina Bogdanovich, Vasily Zhibul, Anna Severinets, Anton Rudak and others – will report at the event.

The first event within the framework of the joint project is dedicated to the poet Valeriy Marakou, who was admitted to “Maladnyak” in 1926. He lived a short life, leaving behind only four poetic collections: “Petals” (1926), “On the Golden Mowing” (1927) , “Summits of Wishes” (1930), “Rights to the Weapon” (1933).

Almost until the beginning of the 21st century, the personality of Valery Marakou was little-known to the reader. To know better the work of the poet you may due to the works "Ashberry Night" (2003), collected and published by his nephew Leonid Marakou. He has studied the manuscripts of Valery and written the book “Valery Marakou. Fate, Chronicles, Context.”(1999).


The event will take place on March 14 at 4 pm in the State Museum of the History of Belarusian Literature (Minsk, Bogdanovicha St., 13).

We invite everyone interested!
