The Book

almanach

There are a lot of great people living here today - the best Azerbaijanis, who despite the challenges they have to face every day, still live, love, create, fight and even do business here.

One of these people is Nigar Kocharli - my dear friend and a very extraordinary and smart person. She is the owner of Ali&Nino bookstores and also one of the most popular Azeri bloggers (nigar.livejournal.com).

Several months ago she came up with an idea to mix favorite job and the hobby. According to her plan, the most talented Azeri bloggers had to write a fiction story (or 2) each and send it to the editorial board, which in its turn was supposed to select the best ones. As the project was launched, not only her friends but some already famous young Azeri and non-Azeri writers expressed their willingness to participate.

Editorial board had a really hard time choosing among beautiful stories of talented writers. However, today, the book is ready. It has a creative cover, good quality and a very special meaning for all of us.

Today, we salute Nigar for making us proud. Today, we're gonna participate in a presentation of the book in her Ali&Nino book cafe at 7 PM.

Everyone is welcome to come!
