The event will gather representatives of Belarus and Russia – writers, public figures, journalists, historians, veterans of the Great Patriotic War, those who like Simonov’s works.

“Simonovskiye Chteniya” will include a round table, flower-laying to the stone to Simonov in Buinichi Field, a concert in honour of the author, awarding the winners of the International literary competition. The participants will hold meetings with students of Mogilev, visit Mogilev State Food Technology University, Mogilev State Kuleshov University and other education establishments.

According to Mogilev city office of ROO “Russkoye Obschestvo”, “Simonovskiye Chteniya” is a significant culture event in Mogilev. The readings began in 1980, a year after Simonov’s death. Two more readings were held. And then the festival was resumed only in 2005. Since then the fest has become an annual event. With time the readings have extended the format to include a series of events.
