Chisinau, 26 May /MOLDPRES/ - The Arbor association for culture and arts from Romania, in partnership with the Chisinau-based Ion Creanga National Library for Children, has launched the Abandoned Stories project.
Texts for children, written by Moldovan authors from the second half of the 20th century, which are provided to audience through a book available online, are recovered within the project.
Contacted by MOLDPRES, the head of the Arbor association for culture and arts, Victoria Nagy Vajda, said that a big research work had been behind the project: 55 books, 150 stories signed by 45 authors, from the period when the books were printed in the Cyrillic script. After 1989, when Moldova returned the Latin script, many of the old volumes unfortunately were not republished. So far, only 60-70 per cent of the literary texts of interest have been printed in new editions.
The book of abandoned stories will be launched on 28 May, at the branch of the Ion Creanga National Library for Children at the headquarters of the Licurici Republican Puppet Theatre from Chisinau; on 1 June – in Iasi, and on 4 June – in Bucharest.
