- I've always been interested in family stories. Before, I often went to my grandmother by train in the summer. And then everyone shared stories with fellow travelers. This is a kind of psychotherapy, as people knew they would never see each other again. And I liked to lie on the top shelf and listen to these stories, - noted Natalya Solovyova.
Online meetings will last until December 23.
At the end of the month, they will also publish a schedule of events and a list of authors who will air live in January next year.
