Today, I’m launching a new venture, Europe by Book. I’m starting with a Facebook page. A website and more outlets will follow.
This year, Plovdiv is the European Capital of Culture, so it is a good place to start our tour of Europe by Book.
In 1855, Hristo G. Danov created the first Bulgarian publishing company and printing-press. Furthermore, the city can boast Bulgaria’s first public library, the Ivan Vazov National Library, founded in 1879 and named after the famous Bulgarian writer and poet Ivan Vazov. Today, the library houses over 1.5 million books.
Do you have a favourite Bulgarian author, either from the past or present? Please comment so that I can share your favourites with my readers 🙂
