Literary Evening «May the Road Never End…»

On the 28th of August Gennady Buravkin, our fellow countryman, poet, publicist, translator and public man would have celebrated his 80th anniversary. On September 6, 2016 the library hosted a literary evening «May the Road Never End...» devoted to the memory of the poet.

The name of Gennady Buravkin is associated with outstanding Belarusian poetry and admiration of the richness of the Belarusian language. «He wasn't officially pronounced a People's Poet, yet he was a people's poet in his very nature», said Denis Yurchak, Chief Specialist of the Main Department for Ideology, Culture and Youth Affair of the Executive Committee of Vitebsk. People's Artist of Belarus and leading dancer of the National Academic Drama Theater named after Yakub Kolas Svetlana Okruzhnaya while speaking about her meetings with Gennady Buravkin recalled him being a very kind and diplomatic person. Poet and satirist Mikhas Miranovich mentioned Gennady Buravkin's great sense of humor and read his parodies on some of the poet's works.

There was also an electronic presentation of the life and work of Gennady Buravkin made by the employees of the Department of Local History Literature and Bibliography.

The lyrics of a huge number of popular Belarusian songs were based on Gennady Buravkin's poems. At the evening, for one, the participants listened to a song called «Zavirukha» («Blizzard») performed by Alexandra Gvozdeva, a student of a secondary school of Suykovo. There was also the presentation of a music video on the song «Matulya» («Mummy») by Dmitry Voytushkevich.

The second half of the event was devoted to the book of memories of Gennady Buravkin «Peradusim Belarus» («Belarus First and Foremost») which has been recently published in the series «Knigarnya Pismennika» («A Writer's Bookstore») of the Library of the Union of Writers of Belarus. Sergei Shapran, the author of the collection and journalist, spoke about his work on this book and also on the last collection of poems by Gennady Buravkin «Nagavarytsa z zorkami» (To Talk with the Stars). An audio record of the poet's farewell address to the Belarusian nation was played. It was followed by the speeches of Chairman of the Union of Writers of Belarus and Chief Editor of the «Dzeyaslow» («Verb») magazine Boris Petrovich, First Deputy Chairman Ales' Pashkevich, poet Mikhas Skobla and poet and novelist Vsevolod Steburako, all of them recalling their friendship with Gennady Buravkin and expressing gratitude for his great contribution to the good of Belarus. A friend of Gennady Buravkin, Honorary Chairman of the Board of Vitebsk Regional Organization of the Public Association «The Belarusian Language Society named after F. Skaryna» Joseph Naumchik expressed his hope that one day streets, schools and cultural institutions in different communities across Vitebsk region would be named after our famous countrymen – Gennady Buravkin, Rygor Baradulin and Vasil Bykov.

At the end of the evening, a phonogram of Gennady Buravkin reading his poem «Prayer» was played.
