The participants were Haygashod Agasyan (Bulgarian singer and composer from Armenian descent), Svetlozar Zhelev (a Bulgarian editor, writer and director of the National Book Centre), Velizar Agopyan (the chairman of AGBU Sofia) and Soni Bohosyan (a young member of AGBU Sofia who actually organized the event).
The authors that we represented were Narine Abgaryan with The people who are always with me, Sevda Sevan with Rodosto, Rodosto and we couldn’t imagine such an event without the poem “Armenians” by the Bulgarian poet Peyo Yavorov, so we included “Armenians” as well. Especially for this event Prof. Amelia Licheva (a Bulgarian literary critic and poet) wrote an analysis of “Armenians” that we also presented.
The participants surprised the public with stories they shared about the authors or about the Armenian history.
We got a lot of congratulations about the event and now we know for sure that it won’t be the last one.
