Red square not with Lenin, but with a book

Wait! From 3 to 6 June on the red square will unfold book festival, who had for the time become a favorite for everyone: publishers, writers, librarians, bibliophiles, readers of all ages (everyone will find a Playground for the soul). The novelty of the project lies in its location and atmosphere: read a book on a sun lounger by the Kremlin walls is well worth it. Red square – the most spiritual place of the country. Much more reasonable to experience here in literature than to look at mummy, wife which at the time banned so many good works that the list of anti-Soviet publications was replenished even fairy tales Yershov and Chukovsky.
