Topic: IRAS - JOINT VENTURES
is an open international Internet-bookshop, created by publishing houses E.Ra and Detki-74 (Selena-Studio)
- It is a project directed to unanimity of people living in different countries. In the contemporary world literary work in Russian language acquires a first rate significance for preserving the segment of Russian culture; our purpose is an assistance to Russian speaking authors living abroad in sharing out their books in Russia and to Russian authors in attaining access to living abroad readers.
- Here are our particular principles of work with people:
- We will try to give a reader access to modern noncommercial books, which create a contemporary literary process. Since, the contemporary literature is not the literature of "names", it is rather the literature of "process", where each author is respected and demands attention and support!
- We believe that in the critical moments of society development additional mechanism of preserving culture is being switched on. First of all the number of writing people is growing. We should not fight with this; on the contrary we should greet and encouragethis phenomenon. Any division on "castes" in literature and, especially, in book trade makes a huge damage to cultural state of society.
"ERA & Selena"
- is the project which main purpose is not only discovery of new talented names in the world of literature but also giving support to unknown names in sharing out the books of non commercial trend.
