The 'Family book’ display
Does your Family have a significant and dear book, story or a poem? Maybe a fairy tale your family has told before bedtime from one generation to the next?
Pick one book and enter a contest until August 31st , and perhaps your family will be among those, whose story and chosen book will be presented in the Display 'Family book' (orig. Dzimtas grāmata), in Riga, Liepaja and Rezekne in 2020.
From all the family’s that will submit their personal stories and books to the contest, we will pick eight that will be shown in a dedicated display and a video. In summary, twelve family stories will be included in the 'Family book' Display.
Four stories will come from families that are included in the book 'House Coats of Arms in Modern Latvia'.
The results will be announced on October 1st, 2019. The filming of the chosen families is expected to happen from October 2019 until December 2019.
The opening of the exhibition is expected in January 2020 in the National Library of Latvia, however in February the exhibition can be seen in Liepaja (in Liepājas Latviešu biedrības nams), and in March - at the Latgale embassy GORS in Rezekne.
The received family stories will be evaluated by a group of professionals.
