The presentation of the new book “Fairy Chukotka” will be held in Anadyr on Saturday, February 8, at the Museum Center “Heritage of Chukotka”. The collection of the Press-pass publishing house, released at the end of last year, includes little-known tales of the peoples of the North and the works of young Chukchi writers.

The book was first presented in December last year as part of the Days of the Far East in Moscow. According to the editor-compiler Alexandra Agafonova, after that, print orders for Fairy-Tale Chukotka began to come even from abroad.

“Pre-orders for the book came from almost 50 regions of Russia and more than 10 foreign countries. The publication was circulated by federal bookselling networks. We are very pleased that the publication is becoming available to a wide audience, ”said Alexandra Agafonova.

In addition to the author-compiler, the book was worked by art director Evgenia Vedenisova and young illustrator Ksenia Voronova. The Chukchi tales for the collection are taken from the materials of the Chukotka Heritage Museum Center and the archive of the teacher Ivan Polomoshnov, the Eskimo ones are from the monographs of Grigory Manovshchikov, Doctor of Philology. Six of their tales were sent to the author by a young Chukchi writer Samira Asadova.

The book has many different footnotes that explain the Chukchi and Eskimo words, there are QR codes with which readers can listen to the audio versions of fairy tales in Russian, Chukchi and Eskimo. "Fairy Chukotka" became the third book in a series devoted to the indigenous peoples of the Far East. Previously, the books “Fairytale Kamchatka” and “Fairytale Yakutia” were published.
