Project Presentation: “100 Life-changing Books”

November 5, 2013, 17:00 press conference

On November 5 the release of the “100 Life-changing Books” initiative kicked off at and with the support of the Digital October Center as well as the Knowledge Stream educational project.

The Public Reading Initiative and Rospechat in conjunction with the online book supermarket Litres will attempt to draw the attention of the youth to reading by acting through sports, stage, TV, and political stars.

100 celebrities, including Ivan Urgant, Tina Kandelaki, Nikolai Valuev, and Anastasia Myskina, shared their book tastes with the project’s authors, a list of hundreds of works that have already changed someone’s life.

In addition to star-powered recommendations, the project will also include gamification-based interactivity with the audience, as school children will be able to earn points toward an e-reader and even try out the role of a great writer.
