Short List of the Yasnaya Polyana Book Award for 2018 Announced


The Leo Tolstoy Estate-Museum and the Samsung Electronics Company, co-founders of the Yasnaya Polyana Book Award, have announced the short list in the Modern Russian Fiction  category for 2018.

The “Yasnaya Polyana” literary prize has been awarded annually since 2003. The Yasnaya Polyana Modern Russian Fiction Award recognizes an outstanding work by a modern author which promotes the ideals of humanity and which is important to read at this time as it reveals the course of present-day literary trends. Books published since 2015 were nominated for this year’s prize.

Leo Tolstoy’s Jubilee in the Press


To commemorate the 190th anniversary of Leo Tolstoy’s birth, the Yasnaya Polyana Museum prepared a special online project, Leo Tolstoy’s Jubilee in the Press (link to a Russian-language web site). This title is still relevant, but now such anniversaries are announced not only in the printed media, but also on the Internet and on TV.

One hundred and ten years ago, when Leo Tolstoy‘s 80th birthday was celebrated, the press published a chronicle of the celebrations both in Russia and abroad. Some newspapers dedicated separate columns to Tolstoy, and on the very day of his birth, even published special editions; both serious materials and satirical articles were published, and, of course, some amusing incidents also took place. For our project, we selected extracts from various Russian newspapers published from February to October of 1908.
