The National Library “St. St. Cyril and Methodius” in Sofia, Bulgaria has announced the annual Writer and Reader of the Year Awards.

The “St. St. Cyril and Methodius” National Library in Sofia, Bulgaria has announced the annual Writer and Reader of the Year awards. The awards have been established as the Library’s attempt to popularize contemporary Bulgarian culture and stimulate reading in the capital. Writer of the Year Award goes to Milen Ruskov, who is the most read creative writer for 2017. Ruskov shares first place with Georgi Markov, who is the most read writer of science and popular science, and Zhivka Shopova who is the most read author of children’s literature. Reader of the Year award went to Valya Petrova and the Reader of the Year award for children’s literature went to the 10-year-old Kristyan Todorov.

The Bulgarian National Radio received an award for its significant contribution towards the National Library and its events. The radio’s program “Horizont” often covers the library’s newest project and dedicates valuable minutes to the popularization of its ideas. The ruling body of the “St. St. Cyril and Methodius” National Library said that they are a mediator between writers and readers, but the media connects the Library, readers and writers in its own way, for which their award is completely deserved.
