"Uneasy Heart," a book exhibition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Belarusian writer, screenwriter, Honored Worker of Culture of Belarus, winner of the Literary Prize named after I. Melezh, Alies Asipenka (1919–1994), runs in the Belarusian literature reading room (205), from September 6 to October 24.
Alies Asipenka (Alexander Kharitonovich) belongs to the generation of writers who were very young when World War II broke out. He started with Ivan Melezh, Ivan Shamyakin, Ivan Navumenka, Barys Sachanka and other talented Belarusian writers.
The author’s writing is a bright and talented chronicle of Belarusian history that reveals such important philosophical and ethical issues as national identity, the continuity of generations, the tragic role of war in human destinies and the inextricable relationship of man and his surroundings.
The offered exhibition presents the books of Alies Asipenka: novels, stories, movie scripts, and also his translations into the Russian, Ukrainian and Bulgarian languages. The second section of the exhibition includes critical essays and publications about the writer’s life and work.
