Scientific Library of National University "Odessa Law Academy" once again acted as a platform for acquaintance and communication of the author with reader.
At the beginning of October, 2018 students of the University got acquainted with the journalist, writer and scriptwriter Elena Antonova, who presented her book «My dear distant ancestors» (Odessa, KP OGT, 2016).
The new edition, donated by the author to the library fund this summer, reveals the fascinating history of the Odessa family, which for centuries has been tied up by tight bands of people of different nationalities. This kind of multiculturalism is a distinctive feature of the Ukrainian South, which, however, added the color and originality inherent only to this region.
Of great interest was the story of Elena Antonova about the features of the search for the materials needed in various archives, open databases, as well as creative decisions, doubts and creative search that accompanied the process of writing the book.
The presentation was accompanied by a book exhibition "Multinational Odessa", where interesting works from the Odessa regional studies were presented.
