September 27 – December 31
Date

The National Library of Belarus opens a series of colorful activities titled "Touch the Brest Bible", dedicated to this book-masterpiece of the Renaissance. Who want to touch history? Everyone will get this opportunity literally or metaphorically.

In early September the original copy of the Brest Bible was solemnly presented by the President of our city to Brest and the National Library has prepared a facsimile edition of the famous monument. It’s doubly symbolic cause in September 1563 the book was published in Brest.

In this connection the library plans to hold a series of events in different formats and for different audience, to show everyone a true masterpiece of the national culture.

During the first meeting the program of "Brest autumn" will be announced. All participants will have the opportunity to flip through a facsimile edition of the Brest Bible. The first meeting will be held in the format of public lecture by experts of the Belarusian book culture, Alies Susha. He will give answers to many questions about the most mysterious, beautiful and expensive edition in the country's history. But unfortunately (or fortunately?) there will be a lot of questions.

Come and touch the book masterpiece on September 27, at 3 pm.
Location: Atrium (2nd floor).

Tel.: (+375 17) 293 27 81, 293 27 82.
