10.11.2009

On the 5th of November, 2009, at the “People’s House” of the State M.A. Sholokhov Museum-Reserve there was a meeting with the chief editor of the magazine for a family reading  “Muraveinik” (“Ant-Hill”) Nikolay Nikolayevich Starchenko. The meeting was joined by the museum workers, librarians, teachers, schoolchildren and students of the pedagogical college named after M.A. Sholokhov.

N.N.  Starchenko told about the creative editorial group of the “Muraveinik” (“Ant-Hill”), about the conception of the magazine, permanent headings, photo reports from the sites locating natural and historic memorials. “The main thing, - Nikolay Nikolayevich  stressed, - is to learn to present a complete notion of the world, not merely dry, encyclopaedic, but alive, inspired one. The “Muraveinik” (“Ant-Hill”) is a possibility to speak about the nature and life”.

This year the magazine was 15. The subject of Sholokhov is a a leading one, the pages of the “Muraveinik” (“Ant-Hill”) often bear essays about the work of M.A. Sholokhov, who glorified the Don nature, the pictures of the writer’s favourite places of visiting.

The director of the Museum A.M. Sholokhov thanked the editorial body of the magazine for their bringing up kindness, intellectual curiosity in children, training in thinking, for their answering many important questions, and wished them a creative success.

The members of the meeting got acquainted with the latest issues of the magazine and expressed their sincere desire to become co-authors of the “Muraveinik” (“Ant-Hill”).

Nikolay Starchenko and his wife Tatiyana Viktorovna, accompanying him in his trip, and a photo correspondent for the newspaper “Rodnoye Pridoniye” (“the native Don land”) Alexander Brovashov attended the Museum Structures and visited Lebyazhiy Yar (“swan’s ravine”), a favourite place of M.A. Sholokhov. As Starchenko confessed, he had been the writer’s admirer since his childhood, and each of his visiting the Sholokhov places (it was his third visit to Vyoshenskaya) was of great importance for him.
